Combine (and not a harvester) “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt”

I published this post first in October 2015 and am re-posting it at the original date:
This week, my dear fellow day jobbers,
I have challenged you to go sacrilegious and combine two poetry form into one. 
For my poem, I have chosen to combine the Golden Shovel with the Haiku. I have a feeling that this might be an already established form not known to me but never mind. It will be fun anyway.

The Poem I’ve chosen for the Golden Shovel

The poem I’ve chosen for my Golden Shovel line is W.H. Auden’s “Stop All The Clocks“. It is one of my favourite poems. It is the last line that gives the end words for my three haiku and as I am not counting syllables in writing haiku that will be fine. You can find my interpretation of writing haiku at the end of this post.
Ok, let’s verse 🙂

This week’s poem:

pear tree in for
my tinkering with nothing
in old gardens now
the fairies can
uplift my living ever
even though autumn is come
Crows have to
guide my soul to any
rivers oh so good
