With fearsome roar,
Last autumn's fallen leaves
are blown away.

    pete, a question, why the necessity of using "with". i get the impression there were words before this starting point.

    also, i felt "are" wasn't needed.

    pete, some may think this writing showing cause and effect.
    however, i am not in agreement; i'd like to think, you showed it the way it happened.

    a thought that comes to mind, pete, had you written this as a one line haiku, as the masters had done, previously.


    fearsome roar,
    Last autumn's fallen leaves
    blown away.


    i see, if one has perseverance, good things do come...

    Northen star's brilliance-
    the leafless trees
    at the mercy of the wind

    summer fades --
    silent new day,
    as days before
