Picture This…
(pi ku, Elfje, tau ku, Elfje, haiku)

jagged edge
or
smooth, they let go

Leafy
Yellow, amber
Falling down brown
Oak… drying in early
Autumn

skitter scatter like bugs
in wind
catching in shadowed curbs, corners

Crunch
They did
Those leaves underfoot
On a star filled
Evening

less time to rake those
fallen piles as the daylight
lessens this season

admire the autumn
auburn; those leaves tell-tailing
summer’s shorter days

Word Origin and History for auburn,n: early 15c.,
from Old French auborne, from Medieval Latin alburnus “off-white, whitish,”
from Latin albus “white” (see alb ). It came to English meaning “yellowish-white, flaxen,”
but shifted 16c. to “reddish-brown”under influence of Middle English
brun “brown,” which also changed the spelling.
*
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auburn_hair Auburn encompasses the color maroon,
but so too do chestnut and burgundy. In contrast with the two,
auburn is more red in color, while chestnut is more brown,
and burgundy is more purple; chestnut hair is also
often referred to as “chestnut-brown”.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: My haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

…notice leaves…

feet scuffle
allez and egress
lilt, tap, dance
lope, trot, prance
entering autumn with grace
notice leaves; stop: see
*
apple red, orange
waves, yellow hues all –
east wind carries them

Note: to me autumn colors are ‘fallen awe.
’Cemeteries hold our ‘fallen’ loved ones…
And there is always an ‘awe’ to see headstones,
especially very old historical ones.
Addendum:
allez; French for ‘go’ – to fit the
syllable count and definition of movement – to go.
Yes egress also means to leave or go, but when we leave one
place we arrive somewhere else. Glad someone was awake to
point out I spelled my word wrong.
Should be FALLEN not Fellen. Fallen as in fall leaves that fell.
Fallen awe as sometimes we drop to our knees when visiting a
cemetery to visit graves and are in awe that our loved ones
are no longer with us – hoping they are in a better place.
