Kyrielle Sonnet (8 syllables)

Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves remind me of death.
The ebb and flow of mortal life.
My mind should dwell on something kind.
Sadly,  I now reflect on strife.

Yes, each day is a reflection,
Of mortality’s cutting knife.
These daily thoughts so hard to shun,
Sadly, I now reflect on strife.

Leave me now,  you thoughts of mourning.
Untimely ghosts of afterlife.
This is a beautiful morning!
Sadly,  I now reflect on strife.

Autumn leaves remind me of death.
Sadly, I now reflect on strife.

  1. The repetition works here, adding so much to the atmosphere of this sonnet.

  2. This is incredibly beautiful, SO well done–congrats. And I also know the feelings you’ve written about–Autumn, and then Winter bring on the deeper shadowed ponderings. Thank you for the poem.

    • Thank you for reading an commenting…yes, As the passing of seasons, I guess it’s natural that we contemplate upon the cycles of life. Probably why Haiku are so tied up with the season via their kigo.

  3. Poignant…beautifully expressed…I could feel the words as I read them…
