Falls’ Crimson Angels

Kwan Yin

Our Japanese Maple has reached its peak glow. Its crimson foliage embraces our statue of Kwan Yin, the Buddhist personification of compassion, who returns to earth to spread mercy.

Below is a haiku inspired by the photo. Please share a haiku that comes to you as you view the photo. (A traditional haiku is 3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables and 5 syllables.)

 Fall’s crimson angels

Dance around compassion’s face

And then fall earthward.
