That's a good haiku!

It's always interesting to see, to smell, to feel the change of the seasons. Well, it's really a "long goodbye".

Best wishes,

Thanks, Doug. I just spent a week in the Berkshires, in northwestern Massachusetts, where, if you looked closely, the haiku way, you could see the signs I am talking about. The poem itself was written a while back and is based on earlier visits.
