    time for beddy-byes
    I close the book
    and turn off the light

    autumn equinox...
    crimson leaves sparkle
    on the outfield grass

    alone at the pew
    savouring the whisper
    of my prayers

    When I got your haiku I read it out loud.
    A colleague replied

    summer ends
    turning the last leaf
    of a book

    as he has never written a haiku I promised to send it to you in case you liked it

    howling winds, subside
    red embers crackle
    sleep comes easy, tonight

    autumn sun settling low
    off in the distance ...
    my winter

    autumn
    the pond fills
    with leaves

    Closing the book...
    on the last cover
    flowers of forget-me-not
