Corpses underneath
My feet crunch from the fallen
Soldiers of autumn.
© Jessyca Mathews 2016

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.
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.

fallen hair gathers
this mirror I stare into
shows me a stranger

This is Nia’s first appearance at Pure Haiku. She describes herself as a shade of grey, always wondering and seeking, what for, she has no clue. You can find out more about her at Nia So

I chose this haiku because although I didn’t lose my hair, my face changed during chemo and I didn’t recognise myself for months…

dead wood fallen
to the ground, piercing the dark earth.
Motionless; tree death
