Sharing Bette’s select samples from MY MAINE, Haiku Through the Seasons by Bette A. Stevens)

Bette A. Stevens, Maine Author

My upcoming collection of haiku reflects the Maine I know and love. Here is a sampling of several stanzas from the section Autumn Leaves. I hope you enjoy them and would appreciate your comments. I plan to have the entire collection edited, formatted and published before year’s end. ~Bette A. Stevens, Maine author 

Autumn Leaves

(Selected samples fromMY MAINE, Haiku Through the Seasons by Bette A. Stevens)

Washed across woodlands
Blazing brush transforms the world
Into a canvas

Church steeples flashing
Like beacons across mural
Of the Master’s hand

Climb to the summit
Ascending steep timbered trails
Foliage at peak

Crispy, crunchy leaves
Frolic in the wind
Carnival classics

Skycastle ensigns—
Clever couriers announce
The coming tempest

Harvesting, mulching
Gardener’s work never done
But oh, the rewards

Cinnamon, nutmeg
Pumpkin confections abound
Connoisseur’s delight 

Window panes clatter
Leaves scatter in the whirlwind
Green fields turned umber

Drifting off…

    Beautiful! I love the photo and poem. This warmed my heart today as I am reminded of all the lovely times I’ve had in Maine and how I hope to get back there at some point to paint and just enjoy the vast nature and beauty there.

    I really love this poetic composition. It has a sweet, dynamic transitioning that carries feelings of homebody, nostalgia and hospitality. All blended superbly with nature.
