This week’s haiku invitation from the Naturalist Weekly is to write a haiku or senryu that contrasts hot and cold. 

Check out the post Micro-Season: “The Springwater Holds Warmth” (2023) and learn more about writing haiku.

last fall’s leaves blowing

  1. I love this, but if the leaves touch my hot beverage, I might not want to drink more of it haha 😂 thank you so much for sharing! I always enjoy your poetry 😊

      1. Oh good! I don’t really drink coffee, but I’m a huge fan of tea, hot chocolate, and hot spiced apple cider. I go to the barn with any of these beverages, and I remember once that Lukka decided that she wanted a sip of my apple cider. I couldn’t be upset at her, but I was disappointed in myself for not bringing enough for the both of us haha 😂 of course! Always excited to read your work!
