Sunkist Sky (Haiku string)

by Maple Tree   Nov 22, 2015


Breathtaking autumn
soldiers guard a Sunkist sky
footprints in the leaves.

Gazing towards highland
marigold angels transform
cascading nature.

Forest trees transcend
forever alone within
my land of beauty.

    Breathtaking autumn
    soldiers guard a Sunkist sky
    footprints in the leaves.

    ^^This is a lovely opening like a morning greet for the readers. I like the picture you have painted here with soldiers guarding a Sunkist sky. I can just imagine the colors here! Oh the footprint is another vivid one on a carpet filled leaves.

    Gazing towards highland
    marigold angels transform
    cascading nature.

    ^^Another picturesque view here. I can just see the constant run of a green filled grass entwined decorated with marigolds..liked the color combination here.

    You have penned this Haiku so elegantly with your words...very nice.

    So lovely, especially that last stanza. That peace and tranquility in having that shelter. I loved the idea of soldiers guarding the sky.

    One thing I noticed, is "forrest" supposed to be "forest" unless you meant something else? I looked it up with two r's and it's a place and person lol. Maybe I'm missing something. Small thing anyways.

    Beautiful string of haiku's.

    This is absolutely beautiful.I read it a few times and it is so very well detailed. I love sort poetry and you a whole lot.
    Sunkist is orange and where nature is concerned it is after sunset or it happens after thunderstorms.
    Marigolds are very beautiful and strong smelling flowers, low maintenance and belong to the daisy family. My favorite flower. The I Marigold keep mosquitoes away.
    Footprints in the leafs indicate moisture.
    I see soldiers standing strong and highly focused protecting their land.
    That's what I personally get from this write.
