"Southern Hemisphere" Entry for the Haiku competition.

'Autumn is with you
Spring for us invites the heat.
I wish I lived there.'

Southern Hemisphere (spring)



In pouring sake


Here's my Haiku for the competition:

The dry leaves rustle
When children scuffle through them
Making happy sounds too


Name of Poem - The Feeling of Autumn
The cold autumn winds,
The soft crunch of leaves beneath,
With fireplaces crackling.


Southern Hemisphere
“Troops swarm, Spring warms forth
Blades of Grass meet Blades of Swords
Empires!... newly Forged!”


Hey there Forge fans,

The colourful Autumn months have inspired the poets for generations, and now its your turn! We want to hear your haikus, inspired by the beautiful months of Fall (or for our Southern Hemisphere players - Spring ;) ). To enter the competition, just submit your Haiku in the replies below - don't worry, no one will be able to see them until the competition is over! The haiku can be on any topic related to the autumn - a spooky ghost poem, an ode to Autumn or whatever takes your fancy. If you live in the southern hemisphere and want to make your haiku about spring, just start your reply with the line "Southern Hemisphere".

What is a haiku?

So your poem should have three lines. The first with 5 syllables, the second with 7 syllables, the third with 5 syllables again.
For example:

“The Old Pond” by Matsuo Bashō
An old silent pond (5 syllables)
A frog jumps into the pond— (7 syllables)
Splash! Silence again. (5 syllables)

A wet Autumn day

I love this season
