Becky’s Haiku: Pine and Grief

053

For a different road

I pine letting grief obscure

This journey of mine.

 

I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “pine” and “grief”. I am enjoying the challenge of trying to use such seemingly different and even opposite words in such a short poem. These prompts from Ronovan can really be a challenge to the mind.  If you like poetry challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/

Welcoming AUTUMN

003

Acorns dropping from the old oak trees

Uncovered and bare branches sway in the chilly breeze

Thick needled pines remain a deep hunter green

Untouched by time and the approaching winter season

Maple, elms, ash, and birch all sway and soon follow suit

Now changing hues and peaking as their leaves drift upon my shoes.
