Beauty autumnal:
Rich and warm burnished splendor
Knowing of its grace.

Written for Haiku-Heights and their prompt of Beauty.

Burnish splendor, girl what a beautiful tongue you have! Hey Christine have you been to the poetry wagon? The authors name is Rajlakshmi great little poet and she posted what she called an Etheree. **The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
I am gonna pass on the link to her post so you can see it, I think we both would have a good time trying this form of poetry!
Hope you enjoy

You really brew haiku. I love haiku's in their brevity and simplicity. Some people underestimate the power of this form.
