Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

As the season gradually changes from summer towards autumn and we reach out for more jumpers and get cosy during the darker nights, let’s take a moment to notice the atmosphere and what going on around us. And write a haiku or short poem about it! Or just a few words about something that you saw or happened.

You could type some words, draw or brush the words, or use a drawing app on your phone or iPad. Here are some lovely examples from participants, thanks for sending to us 🙂


Ken's Haiku

sharp breeze
change in the weather
sycamore ‘copters

Ken

dashing under the sycamore we take cover as
the august rain starts to pour

Blair (in response to Ken’s haiku)

Shodo

Look! A pheasant’s tail
I grasp the reigns of a horse
Night spills on parchment.

Laura

Gently squeezing the soft hair of the brush
I wash away the sumi traces as the autumn breeze beckons

Blair (in response to Laura’s haiku)


sand martins or swallows?
swooping through the sky
above the yet to ripen blackberries

M

giving up foraging as the thorns block our way
we take a moment to savor the mid afternoon pause 

Blair (in response to M’s haiku)


Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

one footstep
after another
– temple bell

Andy

bathed in soft light
I return to the cushion

Blair (in response to Andy’s haiku)


Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

Broken Broken yet
perfect the Harvest Moon
Upon the Rivulet…

Mike

Slowly dancing purple shadows
Massage the rippling golden currents

Blair (in response to Mike’s haiku)


Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

The wind
and a dream
The leaf on the breeze

Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

Walking and watching
toying with composition
and colour

Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

Misty morning
breeze bringing
golden music

Haiku by Alan, inspired by his sketchbooks and photos of the west coast of Scotland.


Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

Wind hisses in the grass
Gorse branches rattle
Crowns of tangled thorn

Margaret


Creative time - From late Summer to early Autumn

fading colours of flowers and grasses
effortlessly merge as I unhurriedly cycle 
alongside sparkling canal waters

Blair
