Autumn--By Robert P. Hansen--United States


leaves fall
like shedding

one leaf
clings to the
top branch

  1. Robert,
    Good haiku. I wonder why you decided to write about Autumn now, it being months away. I liked the content though. Nice job.
    ?Your new friend,

  2. Yes, some memories are forgotten or let go of like autumn leaves, but certain ones cling to our minds, like that one leaf. Love your writing, Robert!

  3. I absolutely love nature poems, especially those about the autumn season. "Autumn" delivers as it touches my sentimental heartstrings. Thank you for sharing this, Robert. Continued blessings!

  4. I'm seeing your poem in relation to my father's dementia - we cling to the few memories he has left... beautiful poem...
