Haiku For Carpe Diem Special #48, Jane Reichhold’s “riversong”

Today the Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Jane Reichhold’s “Riversong”

wind blown from autumn trees
a stream of gold

My Response…

from the old oak
swirling on autumn breeze
fallen leaves flock

Smiles, love and laughter

    I’ve seen flocks of sheep, but flocks of oaken leaves? Never! 🙂

    If the one who tends the sheep is a shepherd, is the one who tends the flock of oaken leaves an oakherd or a leafherd?

    old refinary
    wind blown from the pipes
    stream of killing smoke

    I love the image of swirling leaves – for me this captures not only JR’s riversong, it captures autumn too! 🙂

      Thank you Wabi.
      Many of our trees down here shed their bark not their leaves, but I thought it best to stick to the oaks of my mother land for today 🙂


  5. Yes! a flock of leaves. Wow! that’s a beauty.

    certainly don’t need a picture to see this one….


  7. A wonderful response on Jane’s ‘riversong’ JRB, I like the oak leaves swirling through this haiku, really an awesome take on Jane’s. In the same sense, tone and Spirit.

    What a beautiful image you’ve created with words, JRB! The good old oak always make me think of home. 🙂

    I like a flock of leaves. Have you ever seen Music & Lyrics with Hugh Grant? His response to the group “A Flock of Seagulls” always pops up in my mind when I hear that word. Beautiful image and I think the surprise use of the word adds to its charm.
