Dear friends,

Yesterday (july 15th) the Autumn Retreat 2017 has started. As you all know I am hosting Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, a daily meme, and I try to create four times a year a “retreat” and now it’s time for the autumn retreat 2017. This time the theme is “departure”, a theme that fits the autumn retreat like a glove.

Here is my first offering for this autumn retreat, two tanka themed departure:

autumn departs
in deep silence willow leaves fall –
tears on this grave
as the willow is green again
another year has gone

deep dark forest
seeking for nature’s mysteries –
a new day rises
after a hot and steamy night
she departs … without a kiss

willow in autumn

Well … I hope you did like the read …. see you tomorrow.

  3. Where I live (in the Hudson Valley), willow is indeed the last common tree to turn in autumn. When the willow departs, so does real autumn (tho it is still “fall quarter” on the calendar).
