Karina Klesko's Choices

 

 

autumn equinox

falling leaves or love

hard to let go

 

# 01. Daniela Bullas, UK

 

 

down
thru the falling leaves
hail

# 05. Peter H. Pache , US

 

 

brittle leaves—

cupping my tin mug

still steaming

 

# 06. Neal Whitman , US

 

 

first Autumn leaf streaks

one hundred crimson sunsets

curl into Winter

 

# 16. Karin Anderson, AU

 

 

a crisp wind

blowing in the sunlight—

spiral of leaves

 

# 37. Keith A. Simmonds, TT

 

 

autumn pond

the shadows of leaves

drift over the bottom

 

# 41. Jacek Margolak, PL

 

 

icy water—

the full moon

among the fallen leaves

 

# 45. Jacek Margolak, PL

 

 

last leaf tippy top

chomped as after dinner mint

a giraffe's tall neck

 

# 56. Karin Anderson, AU

 

 

falling out of Niedecker's poem*

leaves on a bridge

with their stems sticking up

 

*Lorine Niedecker

 

# 57. Cindy Tebo, US

 

 

illiterate fortune teller

reading

the tea leaves

 

# 73. Terri French, US

 

 

endless eddy

of noisy brown leaves...

the mistral

 

# 77. Keith A. Simmonds

 

 

odd that leaves come back

all that falling and getting swept

. . .must know something

 

# 78. Phyllis Jean Green, US

 

 

walking

more distant from myself

leaf by leaf

 

79. Sasa Vazic, SR

 

 

nostalgia—

embers of sunlight stumbling

upon yellow leaves

 

# 81. Keith A. Simmonds

 

 

dark road

long shadow of a dead leaf

hurries across

 

85. Sasa Vazic, SR

 

 

blowing into

my cupped hands

the last leaf falls

 

# 88. Terri French, US

 

 

Leaves fall

one by one from the branch—

first snow

 

# 100. Maria Tirenescu, RO
