Sun Sets Seasoned

Tree Fall by Steph Abbott

The sun sets seasoned
from curled husks detached alight
Gusts grieving morrow

Sunday, October 4, 2015. I wrote this haiku and created the image “Tree Fall” while listening to cellist Gautier Capucon play Antonín Dvořák – Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191 (via YouTube at https://youtu.be/FVKb3DwPFA8). This movement reminds me of when the season starts to change from summer to fall (but summer doesn’t want to leave).

Darkness creeps below
Whiskered valley fore cock crow
Spirits lift aglow

Saturday, November 1, 2014. Here is my first post as part of the National Blog Posting Month challenge. For me, it will be a challenge to post every day of the month. Fingers-crossed, folks. Inspired by Halloween and the turning of the seasons, I created the image of the witch’s familiar using Art Rage 4 software. Thinking of the day after Halloween as All Saints Day, I then wrote the corresponding haiku, Familiar Meow.

August Repose

August Repose by Stephanie Abbott

Her mind quells. Her heart slows. Her soul hums.
It is almost time.
