Poetry Thursday - An October Song



night rain is falling
wind is moving through the leaves
an October song


~ haiku by Aisling October, 2007





We woke to the first frost of the season. This will be the day I look for the windshield scraper, bring the green tomatoes in to ripen on the counter, and share my first frost-in-the-garden photos of the year.



photos 1) Maple leaf on the grass;2) Alchemilla Mollis (Lady's Mantle) 3) Weather-worn Pink Cosmos 4) Pink Zinnia glazed in frost 5) Yellow marigold

Lovely haiku and photos!

Amazing photos. I loved the frosty pink flower especially.

Katie and Kate, Thank you both! It was a gorgeous picture taking morning. I wish my camera would do as well with the beautiful full moon that is shining tonight, in a very clear sky. Oh well, knowing me I will try it anyway! *grin*

We got frost on our windows the past 2 days, but nothing hard enough to frost the grass or plants yet. I feel it coming though.

Grace, It will be there soon enough I guess. It is nice to put on a favorite sweater for the first time in a year though, isn't it? :)

Simply lovely! Thank you for sharing them as I too am hunting for the ice scraper.

Lisa, I'm glad I found mine. Just in time for a wind and sleet storm that is blowing tonight. If I need a scraper in the morning, I'll be prepared. Thank you for your comments today. I'm off to read your blog.
