Issue #147, Fourmile Canyon/Betasso Preserve, Boulder, Colorado, October 11, 2008. Haiku and images by Jonathan Machen.

the storm we anticipated
finally arrived -
good time for a walk

once off the trail
forest embraces me fully
hidden paths emerge

yellows and oranges
mark the end of a season
not blues and purples

walking up ravines
and unknown gullies - it takes awhile
to know a place

heady with basil
from october harvest
fingers carry the scent

white quartz
evoking these
old mountain bones

sky heaves a sigh
draping landscape
in october cloud

lifted into
the clouds above
this walking trail

for over an hour
temperature drops

last brave blossom
stands tall
against october squall
