Haiku - Departing Summer

Departing Summer

shorter days long nights
cool clear harvest moon is near-
departing Summer

For the Prompt it is said to write in our own language. My own language is English... I am American living in Germany. So I know English well. I am learning German. My mandatory German class begins again this week... which I want to learn. I don't know enough German to write a Haiku in German. But I might want to try sometime. 

Inspired by:

Carpe Diem's Kamishibai #10, "departing summer"


  1. WOW! Jamie this is a beauty ... I have tried to translate it into German:

    kürzere Tage längere Nächte
    kühl klar Erntemond komt näher
    das Ende der Sommer

    German isn't my maiden tongue, so maybe this translation is not completely right, but I just had to try.

    1. Thank You. I can read it... I think it is good. : )
