    late summer:
    rising through raindrops
    milkweed tufts

    The golden finch singing...
    with each of her white sound
    another red leaf falls down

    cattails
    'longside* overgrown marsh
    horny red-winged blackbird calls


    * alongside for those who wonder

    red leaves, dark trees
    yellow apples on the ground
    it's time to go

    Yes. And now the finches are losing their brilliant yellow, as we see each day when they visit the thistle-seed feeder. At this time of year, Keats' "To Autumn" is never far from my thoughts ("season of mists and mellow fruitfulness"). Living in a rural area just intensifies the awareness of seasonal change. Thank you for your lovely haiku.

    chilly autumn arrival
    in the air
    silent mockingbird's song
