smiles. fun wordplay...i rather like all the color unveiled...
why those little sneaks!
your leaves change several weeks before ours do in the mid-Atlantic region (aka Pennsylvania). I hope I don't blink and miss it. I keep mt camera ready now/
Short, clever. Excellent.
I love the fire of change. It's what makes me yearn for the fall.
The image is a fantastically goo prompt and the poem rises to it beautifully.
What a brilliant haiku! Surprising too! Very clever!
Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But this poem seems to be aware that the color is always there and only shows after the chlorophyll goes away. Yet the poet still remains in awe of the beauty. That is the best way to use science.
Editors Note:Fred, do not look for scientific accuracy within these pages...you will be led horribly and magnificently astrayRene
What can be done toabsolve me of the greenthat my fire be revealed?
Love this haiku!! And thanks for the nice comment over at my blog.
I'm with Fred Miller. Interesting idea that autumn shades are there all the time, masked by the green of photosynthesis! Colour meunioneun awestruck too.
