Haiku for You

This is a selfie... Sorry.

Fortunate mistake
I forgot my umbrella
Fate brought me to yours

Ah, haiku; so short
Like summer in Canada
Words like peaches end

Precious as a leaf
Falling in apprehension
Of obscuring snow

You might be able to tell, I delight in haiku.  It is so wonderful to have the stiff parameters of syllable count and seasonality to adhere to.  I take it as freedom to play with metaphor, innuendo, allusion and other subtle devices.  I encourage you to do the same; perhaps, in the comments?
