OCTOBER’S REALITY CHECK

(autumn 2012: the post-fall fall)

1

topaz tree tops flash

warning winter’s white expense

some greens yearn for spring

2

flaming forward fast

amidst lemon, crimson, rust

topaz tree tops flash

3

jeweled mums abound

albino pumpkins astound

topaz tree tops last

4

autumn breezes blow

topaz tree tops flash then fall

while October goes

A HAIKU DUO FOR 2012

Hard Times Encore

~a Café Loup haiku~

what a see-saw world

these turbulent trying times

no exit in sight

Good Times Ahead

~a New Year’s wish~

peace & love maybe

but please first fair play for all

then we’ll rock ’n’ roll

—Mary Folliet
