I was reflecting on how life treats us and how we grow through the experience and I came up with this. It is a form I have used before, three haikus and a single line, making ten lines in all.


This Autumn rebirth
Sends tranquillity
Through the roots of my being

Youthful sap still drives
Mind grown evergreen
To smile in peace on snowfall

When Spring is over
Summer fading faster
Winter memories of pain

In passing lead to perfect emptiness.
