Haibun: Autumn Equinox

#Haiku Happenings #6: Xenia Tran’s latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!


a male swan and his cygnet in the pond

We’re enjoying an Indian Summer. Here and there some leaves are changing colour, a few float along the stream into the pond. The only cygnet that remains is showing his first white feathers. His parents have changed their plumage too. The sun travels lower through the sky, wrapping our world in warmest light.

Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday and a happy September Equinox tomorrow.

With love from Xenia xxx
