Riversong soliloquy

riversong

wind blown from autumn trees

a stream of gold

(© Jane Reichhold)

leaf petal poems scatter

as barren branches shiver.

.

dark mirrors glimmer,

rushes echo sumac rust,

leaf chorus rising.

.

caw-caw caw-caw crows calling

where have all the songbirds gone?

.

relentless downpour,

mushroom spores hide in damp rot,

cones rise like magic.

.

grasses shimmer green raindrops,

sun-scorched browns now orange bronze.

.

last dandelions—

parachutes of hope for a

spring generation.

.

swirling wind dancers fly up

falling to their earthly rest.

Jane Reichhold’s haiku is so beautiful, I just had to try a Soliloquy no Renga response as suggested by Chevrefeuille in Carpe Diem Universal Jane #3: ‘Riversong’.  It was pouring rain today so that influenced my response.
