Fall into Training: A Series of Autumn-inspired Training Haiku

Autumn

Last week I was out for a walk in the woods and a leaf fell on me. The calendar says it’s still summer for the rest of the week here in the northern hemisphere, but the weather is turning cooler, the days are growing shorter and, well, leaves are falling on me.

I love the change of seasons, and I think it’s fun to write poetry.

On this not-quite-fall Monday morning, I offer you this series of autumn-inspired training haikus.  

Haiku 1:

Not sitting eight hours

Is as sweet as a venti

Pumpkin Spice latte

 

Haiku 2:

Brown, red and orange

Earth tones falling on flipchart

Thanks to Mr. Sketch

 

Haiku 3:

Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch

Walking on fresh fallen leaves?

Nope. Candy wrapper.

 

Haiku 4:

Brrrr. It is so cold!

No! This meeting room is hot.

Should’ve worn layers.

 

Haiku 5:

The days are shorter

But the creativity

Offers a warm glow

 

Think you’ve got what it takes to use haiku to describe your fall training schedule? Let’s read your best 3-line, 17-syllable training poetry in the comment section.
