Second day of challenge which means the letter “B”. The alphabet does not start to confuse me until about letter “o”, so I am safe for a few days. Find myself singing the Alphabet song to keep on track. Without further ado–here is today’s offering:

Branches bowing with leaves

One last summer fling before

Green turns to red~gold

Another haikuish for Labour Day weekend.  I am taking a bit of a break but don’t be fooled—coming up with those few words and trying to make sense at the same time is not all that easy.

    • Thank you – you too – wish I could join you for a barbeque–but a friend in town is having us over tonight so my plea did not go unanswered. And tomorrow night I am having a barbeque in my oven.

  3. Tis a lovely haiku, LouAnn. You are having a barbecue tomorrow? That sounds wonderful and also celebrates “b”. Happy long weekend!
