akai aki – red autumn

leaves like fallen flags –
tattered banners sodden by
all day rain stick to
the asphalt – shades of brown and
dull gold – dreams of red still
clinging to branches – a cold
fire burning away gray day.

Red Blade: haiku

red blade of autumn
leaves cuts through green summer leaves.
It is time, it says.
