CARPE DIEM PERPETUUM MOBILE #2: Changes in the Sky


Kristjaan’s inspiring haiku:
seasons come and go  
the everlasting motion of nature- 
perpetuum mobile

mine:
as summer retreats
autumn appears center stage
with her richer hues


linking to Kristjaan's


Hoosier Quote:
“October is nature’s funeral month. Nature glories in death more than in life. The month of departure is more beautiful than the month of coming-October than May. Every green thing loves to die in bright colors.”
~Henry Ward Beecher~

Your enchanting haiku sounds like a distillation of this paragraph from Chapter 3 of The Wind in the Willows:

Such a rich chapter it had been, when one came to look back on it all! With illustrations so numerous and so very highly coloured! The pageant of the river bank had marched steadily along, unfolding itself in scene-pictures that succeeded each other in stately procession. Purple loosestrife arrived early, shaking luxuriant tangled locks along the edge of the mirror whence its own face laughed back at it. Willow-herb, tender and wistful, like a pink sunset cloud, was not slow to follow. Comfrey, the purple hand-in-hand with the white, crept forth to take its place in the line; and at last one morning the diffident and delaying dog-rose stepped delicately on the stage, and one knew, as if string-music had announced it in stately chords that strayed into a gavotte, that June at last was here. One member of the company was still awaited; the shepherd-boy for the nymphs to woo, the knight for whom the ladies waited at the window, the prince that was to kiss the sleeping summer back to life and love. But when meadow-sweet, debonair and odorous in amber jerkin, moved graciously to his place in the group, then the play was ready to begin.
