“now the ginkgo leaves” & “distilling golden” – Two Haiku

Seeing the edges of the leaves of a ginkgo tree beginning to yellow, I wanted to write a haiku. I had a surfeit of images and metaphors though, so you get two for the price of one.

now the ginkgo leaves
yellow, from the edges in
fanning into flame

distilling golden
summer, the ginkgos yellow
ancient alchemies
