One Single Impression -- Autumn


Autumn

Oh golden leaves
whose greatest beauty
is in the falling.

Autumn can look so beautiful, as in this photo. And the words give it grace.

It is enough to recognize our purpose and fulfill it. It is also difficult to do it. Nice to be like the leaves!

Nice play upon the word "fall". The haiku complements the image so well.

Your lines give definite meaning to the naming of fall! It is indeed a golden time and one of unbelievable beauty in my area.

What a pretty road. Glad I don't have to rake there, though. I am noticing that almost everyone of us really likes fall.

So simple and yet so beautifully said. It just took me by surprise with how much you said in so few words.

So true how beautiful they are when they fall, all so different.
Beautifully written.
