morning coffee
her autumn breath joins
rising fog

Absolutely beautiful imagery - I love it! Isn't it amazing how much depth can be conveyed in so few lines? ;-)

Carlos Gesmundo said...

It really is. What's also amazing is how so few lines have spawned "65 rules" that one is advised to bear in mind when writing haiku. (Jane Reihhold, "Haiku Rules That Have Come and Gone")

Shannon O'Donnell said...

That's too many rules for only 19 syllables! I think I feel a migraine coming on! :)

Bigger migraine -- in fact it's 17 or less.
