Haiku for One Single Impression

One Single Impression: Prompt 84: Descent: "Thanks to Sue of Sunflower Roots for this week's prompt, descent."

fiery leaves
fall from limb to land
shooting stars

alpine creek
bounces down the hills
windblown song

I really like the first haiku's image of the autumn's fire-color falling like shooting stars. Very nice.

Visually wonderful and the final lines expertly chosen. Windblown song; how I wish I could learn to play that one.

I love fractals a lot, I used to make them myself by programming math equations that included imaginary number, it is great, you should try it.
Nice haikus, I think they match with Fractal structures

Very creative haikus. One thing for sure Sue, I love your art as much as I your haiku. To me abstract art is very good, as it allows me to see what I desire to see.

Wonderful haikus. They are the perfect accompaniment to Autumn.

Lovely words. I like the first one more that describes autumn beautifully!

Jim said...

Your picture was so good with the haiku. I did a double take on it after the poem looking for any 'real' stars.
I have a question. When an updraft comes along would the leaf 'fall' upwards?
Had you make me think of that before I wrote mine I may have tried working with that thought. I don't suppose that would be very 'poetic' in nature though.

I love how you've captured this prompt in words. And the painting, in a word: OUTSTANDING!

Well done Sue.

Hugs, G
