Scent of autumn #NaPoWriMoDayTen

Crackling conkers
Spitting damp willow stems
Heady smoke


Crackling conkers
Playground games for boys
Roasting optional

Spitting damp willow stem
Shrivels fur like rabbit tails
Green smoke

Heady smoke
Embraces fears of winter
Soothes summer grief


Linked up at carpe diem.

Nice series of haiku Emma. I am glad to see you here again. I thought already that it had to do with our Zodiac-theme why you were 'away'. I hope to see you again soon after our Zodiac-days. We have still four (4) days to go in that Zodiac-theme and there after we start with other prompts. I hope to see you than again here on Carpe Diem.
Thank you Emma for sharing your haiku with us here.

I can feel the brisk autumn day and smell the wood smoke!

A Whiff of Autumn

Is there any game that soothes the grief of children at summer's end?

We all need something to soothe our summer grief. Some of us never find it...

my mind sings, Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...Since it's only April, and barely spring here, I, personally don't want to smell autumn yet!
