Categories: seasons,



they’re almost gone now
how brown, bare the branches look
some toys in the leaves

when rain turns to snow
how sad those two last roses
brave faces with tears

apples      bruised apples
scattered on the frosted green
and this twiggy frown

music in the wind
late october’s final song
dancing red and gold

talk of winter now
old dog by a crackling fire
shutters rattle      pings!

photo of dear dad
he loved that fulsome willow
fallen leaves      marker

   robins’		       my heart		    ebbing
   songs		         leaps		      tide

emotions		   autumn leaves         ode to joy
 morning		      windswept               starry

Autumn Leaves

When autumn leaves fall
    burst of colors red and gold
         drifting in the wind

    Leaves of gold and red
        wrinkled,burnt, kissed by the sun
             leaves a memory

The leaves burn with ember glow.
They fall like ashes.

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus

Trees with sprouting limbs
bathed by spring's April showers
their lacy green robes

Trees with dense full limbs
swayed by warm summer breezes
their green velvet capes

Trees with brilliant limbs
whirled by the cool autumn winds
their burnished gold gowns

Trees with cold bare limbs
frozen by winter blizzards
their white fluffy scarves

East Wind

Der Wind aus Osten
Treibt schon Schnee über das Land
Am späten Herbsttag

The wind from the east
Drifts already snow across the land
At late autumn day

El viento del este
Ya flota nieve a través de la tierra
En un día de otoño

Golden Arbor

Turning Autumn leaves,
Fading from yellow to gold;
Brazened by the sun.

Poem Details | by Dr. Upma A. Sharma |
Categories: beautiful,



When to red roses
thorns virtually applaud
nature shows its art....

When in green garden
thorns are beginning to reign
the autumn will start..

When in the passion
sharp thorns of prickly longing 
deeply pierce a heart..

Halloween Haiku

The devil trembles
Feeling the autumn wind's rage
Children eat candy

Red mask covers eyes
Blind to first fall carnival
Her pockets picked clean

Nevermore  lovers
Halloween murders-blood found

Categories: allegory, introspection, life, seasons,


 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.


 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.

 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.


 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.


 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.

 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.

 Exercise I

 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.

 Exercise II

 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.

 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 He had to learn it.

 All his writing was
 He was egocentric.


 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.

 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 SummerI feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

- Haiku X 19 - Ice King -

                                                The arctic steel blue
                                        Frost smoke rising from the sea           
                                           Wintertime...Ice King rules

     - I hold many ice cubes in my hand, they melt slowly...my hands  is numb,
        wet and cold
     - There was a lot of mess...water everywhere.
     - (All this just for you....)

     - Picture reminds me that I need to enjoy every day of summer and autumn - 
    -  winter is blue, cold, icy, wet and looong.

Autumn Memories

across tree-lined yards
leaves dance in colorful frocks --
distant school bell chimes

through open windows
the scent of pumpkin spice drifts --
an orange moon rises 

under charcoal skies 
rain dampens mouldering leaves --
a lone snowflake falls

Haiku - autumn views

         lichen covered trees
         mingle with fall foliage-
                     withered leaves falling

                     decked in gold color
                     the woods are in their glory-
                                    yellow turns to brown

                                    gold aspen and birch
                                    the red of sugar maple-
                                                        a black squirrel flees
