Autumn Haiku

a falling leaf
caresses my face
floats on
autumn wood
a solitary bird
reveals itself
dead leaf
noticing the bones
of my hand
north wind
in the tree tops
birds gather
on that tree
I never noticed before
a gold leaf
the sun
finding a leaf
to hide behind
       there is that something
about walking through dead leaves
        that puts me in touch
        ah!, so here it is again
     that feeling I can’t explain

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.
