Auburn Berries

Summer Berries

Sweet auburn berries –

turn tart during autumn’s veil,

fickle summer love.

These wild berries grow along the road where I walk each morning.  I took this picture in the heat of summer.

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on

  1. Wonderful haiku, each season brings us magic. Thank you for entering <3

  2. I love haikus, Colleen, and this is a beauty 🙂

  3. It always amazes me how so much can be said in a few words. A perfect combination! 😄

    • Thank you. I believe that is why I love Haiku so much.

      • Plus the inherent perfection in the syllable formation. It’s why it became what it is 😀 I’ve written many, though it’s been a LONG time since I have!

        • Go ahead and join us. It is really fun to challenge yourself. I also do Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku challenge at I take the photos myself (not always) and then I use to add the words. It has been really fun. Ronovan is a great guy!

          • ah, it’s a challenge? Didn’t realize that. I’m not one to participate in challenges. At least not yet. I have too much on my plate to consider adding anything…even something as simple as a haiku! lol Perhaps at some point I will, though 🙂

          • There is no contest. I think “challenge” is more about challenging yourself to try new things 🙂 When you are ready, we will be here. No stress. Just fun. <3

          • lol…no, I know it’s not a contest. I’m definitely not one for competition. Don’t think we should be competing without good reason (like a money prize when you’re broke lol). I don’t want to do challenges either ’cause it’s ANOTHER thing to do and I can barely keep up with blogs, certainly don’t have mine organized yet, and need to actually write, which I never have time for, so challenges or anything else like it isn’t for me just now—if ever! lol Thanks, though!

          • You’re welcome <3

  4. These few words say so much about the changing taste of the fruit. Nicely done.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
