Haiku: Light in the Glen

autumn gold –
the glen lit up
with double rainbows

The double rainbows were a wonderful sight and I captured them in the haiku as I couldn’t fit them in the frame with the lens I had with me.

Wishing you all a happy Thursday and a peaceful rest of the week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Light in the Glen was first published in Autumn Moon Haiku Journal, Volume 5:1, Autumn/Winter 2021. A very big thank you to Bruce Ross for selecting my poem and to the team at Autumn Moon Haiku Journal for putting this beautiful edition together.

  1. Beautiful haiku and photos. When you mentioned “double rainbows,” I immediately thought of Eivor and Pearl! I’ve known many animal friends who could light up the world in such a colorful way. 🙂
