Corpses underneath
My feet crunch from the fallen
Soldiers of autumn.

Here is the third haiku from our featured haiku writer this week! I am pleased to introduce Jessyca Mathews, lover of Channing Tatum, Common, Leo DiCaprio, and other beautiful things, and all-around cool chick. Have you checked out her blog yet? Sultry Lyricist

I loved the way Jessyca marries the fallen leaves of autumn with dead corpses of soldiers beneath her feet.

After the colour
Autumn dresses leaves in lace
For one last fall fling

storm ripped him from branch
but gave him wings to soar, then
softly laid to sleep
