    they catch me
    coming and going
    my eyes itch
    my sinuses clog
    like an old drain
    whether the trees
    are budding
    or the leaves
    are taking their
    parting shot
    on their way
    to death
    how can some
    thing as simple as
    coming and going
    budding and falling
    cause so much
    pain and discomfort
    in the midst of
    beauty and color?

    I think I’m still
    talking about leaves.

      A small haiku for you Milton.
      Landscapes gray and drear/ Autumnal desolation/ Wind leaves trees so lonely.

      Sure love your blog. Cadgie aka the Dancing Crow
