deep chill in the air

deep chill in the air_a.jpgdeep chill in the air
end of long season of warmth
butterfly leaving
butterflies long gone
garden fruit stored in cellar
leaves waiting to fall

I have created two different “fusion” haiku for the challenge at
Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #7 this autumn sky (Sōgi),
inspired by the words in the following two haiku by Inō Sōgi.

deep chill in the air_b.jpgah, for coolness,
it rivals the water’s depth –
this autumn sky
abandoned house
the garden taken over –
butterfly home
