arise from the spirit’s stalks
chill my autumn heart

Curiously as I read this, those flowers then felt cold.
Thank you, oldegg! The color of these flowers is calming and relaxing. .cooling to the senses 🙂
the flame and chill… well played on the contrast… i need a flower to warm my autumn heart.. smiles
Smiles….Yes, I used ‘chill’ …as my senses come alive with its fire/energy, Claudia 🙂 Thanks so much for reading and for that lovely comment.
what a beautiful haiku!!!…
Thank you, Sumana!
an autumn chill sounds tough… but the contrast works nicely.
Oh yes, I understand… but here the spirit chills my ‘autumn heart’. Aren’t we all fighting against boredom every day brudberg. Smiles…
Thanks for coming by… 🙂
Oh, I was hoping your heart would be warmed…
And…it did Mark :)) Thanks for being here…
There are no more beautiful flames than those from such a lovely a lovely flower! I personally would hope to find autumn warmth…ha, no more flowers blooming outside here! Sigh.
We do not have a very cold winter in India; in fact most parts of the country have just 3 seasons namely summer, monsoons and spring. Hence, spring continues till summer starts! We all have beautiful flowering plants thriving during winter time.
I’m so happy this post connected with you, Mary. Thanks for reading 🙂
Beautiful poem. So true to form.
Thank you dear friend, glmeisner! Your words fill me with joy!
It can have profound effects if the heart is already chilled before the coming of winter. It is sad! Good thoughts Panchali!
I am glad you nodded to that, Hank! Actually, my heart was set ablaze by the purple fire 🙂 Thanks a ton!

The mystical color purple the color of the third eye … very spiritual take on this prompt Panchali … very strong giving me a feeling of warmth on a cold autumn-evening …. sitting, curled up in front of the fireplace … thank you for this wonderful haiku.
