September 7th

red leaves, dark shade,

thin cover, thick maze,

early autumn, short day

September 6th

apples, pumpkin, dahlias,

fallen leaves and rain – autumn! –

your perfume is so cold

September 5th

cold through the window

cold through the door, icy drizzle

on the fading roses

September 4th

cat sleeping in the sun,

you’ll never know or care

how bitter chrysanthemums smell…

September 2nd

green tea in my cup

cool air through my window

dark night upon me
