autumn haiku

the poems that fell
were never anthologized
winter drew a blank

[written after reading another haiku on this extensive thread]

I hear the drizzle
from inside my studio
raindrops are waiting

rain-sounds growing
I like to listen
from where I am

let me linger
for two more minutes
the day will wait

because of rain-sounds
the beauty of this season
it reaches deeper

they call this autumn
everything receives a name
dying has nuance

The last haiku in the series is beautiful.

I agree it's the strongest one of the sequence, and the most philosophical.
Your judgment in poetry is something any poet would enjoy.
