Autumn turns the page
She learns more and more of Less
Reading churchyard clay
An excellent Haiku.
Love the final line.

My mom read the book and always encouraged me to crack it open. Perhaps she should’ve said not to read it, and then I may have 😀 I love graveyard poetry, and the way you liken tombstones to books. You’re so right, since there are stories in every marker, and the dead do speak.
Your mother read Cre na Cille ?
I wrote both of these for that thing you were talking about, and posted them to see what sort of reaction you’d have, so feel free to rip into me. I can’t get any better if you don’t. Thanks for reading.
Yeah, I remember it in her bookshelf. It was, of course, the English translation. My mom reads at least 200 books a year and have done so ever since I can remember.
You need no help from me! Your haiku poems are amazing with many different ways of looking at it. The only thing I’d suggest is a brief definition of the title so the readers understand what the poem is about.
Your mom sounds awesome.
I thought about explaining the title, especially for this one, but I wanted to see if anyone would catch the meaning on
My mom is amazing. She’s a great cook, too. I bet she’d like you with your rough edges — she always liked bad boys 😀
Oh, I definitely get where you’re coming from! I just got more feedback when I wasn’t too cryptic — at least that’s what I’ve mostly encountered. I’ve always loved your style, and you should write the way your heart dictates.
Thank you for your help, as always.
And say hello to your mother for me. 🙂
Oops. Wanted to see if anyone would catch the meaning of the title on their own. You’re the first American to do that, so you win. But you’re right, thank you for the advice and thanks again for reading.
I love this haiku journey you’re on. This is brilliant.
Thanks very much, Kathleen, I appreciate that.
Beautiful. Love this!
Many thanks, much appreciated.
