Golden leaves shiver.
Autumn's susurrus quivers;
winter snow follows.

In this Haiku I'm focusing on the feeling behind the changing of the seasons in a forest. When I looked at this picture it reminded me of that crisp sound of dry autumn leaves rustling in the wind. While writing I tried to imagine that feeling, and the over-arching sense of place when considering the environment in a quiet mind. Hopefully it expressed some of what makes a great Haiku:

Kigo (季語), an explicit or implicit reference to a season, that defines the time of the year in which the haiku referrers to or is composed.

Sabi (寂), the sense of the inexorable passage of time, the beauty or serenity that accompanies the advance of age, when the life of the objects and its impermanence are highlighted by patina and wear or by any visible repairs.

Mono no aware (物の哀れ), empathy with nature and human life; the "feeling of things", nostalgia, regret for the passing of time, understanding of the changeability and of the transience without suffering.

Yūgen (幽玄), sense of wonder and mystery; it represents the state of mind produced by the inexplicable fascination of things, the feeling of an 'other' universe, full of mysterious unity.
Reference from @bananafish Mizu No Oto Haiku Competition

This is day three of my month long challenge - from the 06th of August until the 06th of September - to post a daily Haiku on steem. Each week will have a different theme based on picture prompts from either Pixabay.com or Unsplash.com. This week's broad theme is different natural environments.

I have created a new tag #monthofhaiku. If anyone wants to replicate the challenge please feel free, I will check the tag occasionally and try to curate the better Haiku. However, this is not meant to be a challenge to the writers' community. I have an extremely busy month ahead, and I started this as a personal challenge so that I didn't drift away from posting on steem. Please, forgive me if I'm slow to respond to comments or am not around on discord, I have had to reassess my priorities over the last few weeks.

Awesome! I don't think I would be able to write Haiku's each day in a language that's not mine, but I hope many will join in the contest :-) I like the words a lot with the picture :-)

Glad u enjoyed the Haiku Rosa.

Lol, I'll probably be sick of counting syllables by September 🤣

Haiku is a strict

Syllables in each line. Sheesh... Why'd they have to make it so awkward 😉 I'm finding these easier as I choose the image first, and then let it inspire the words.

P.s. thanks for the creativecoin curation 👍🙂
