A Mused Seasonal Haiku (or Senryu)

Drifting autumn leaves
I thought were orange wafers
Proved inedible

Turned yellow in the sunshine

Sneezes wheezes *sniffs*
Frighten social-distancing folk
Oh! Darn allergies!

    Seventeen syllables
    Voila, a haiku

    Comparing Orange wafers to Autumn leaves! So well done and funny! Keats might have had a heart attack though!
