autumn colors in haiku

Pumpkins large and small
decorate porches and doors

Deep red maple leaves
time etched in jagged edges
share silent stories.



Taste of the season
acorn and butternut squash
baked with brown sugar.



Sit on a tree stump,
by the calmness of the creek
watch the sun go down.


Red and brown reflect
like mirrors on the water
October image.
