Haiku Friday, Autumn Light in My Tiny Town

Haiku Friday

Autumn Light in My Tiny Town
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Photobucket Bathed in autumn light
the season of warm colors
and crisp air at night

Summer was brutal.
I'm still sweating even now
left over from then.

It confuses them,
me still content in short sleeves,
me, them in long ones.

I tried to explain
in my busted Japanese.
Did they understand?

We just smile and nod,
sometimes with a little bow.
It means "hey, we tried."

As hot as it was
winter here sucks, too.
Right now is perfect.

So I soak it in,
my favorite time of the year,
to tide me over.

  1. It is supposed to be 80 degrees here today. Crazy warm for fall in these parts, but I'm soaking it in too, for the same reason. Winter sucks. ;)

    Great haiku!
