    Loud antlers clashing,
    stags striving to procreate;
    Ripened apples fall.
    Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.

    Harvest moon rising
    casts a silver shadow on
    wheat before reaping.

    I like the idea of the red rain and the winds awaiting. Perhaps instead of slaking thirst, you could have the rain do something else.
    How about this:

    Red rain falls from trees,
    cycling life for Mother Earth.
    Winter winds await.

    It seems a little more nurturing than "slaking thirst"

    I have a problem with Haiku which actually mention months or the season. The time of year in a Haiku is meant to be alluded to, not stated outright...

    Oops! Looks like some of us have messed up. I wasn't aware of this. Thanks for the info.

    I don't know if a month-name is a valid kigo but I am pretty sure the name of the season is.

    I think you will find that the whole point of Kigo is the avoidance of the direct naming of the season, thus the reaping of corn indicates autumn, the sprouting of say, cherry blossom, indicates spring etc., etc. It is typically Japanese in that Kigo is a coding device, one says something indirect, but the reader knows exactly what is meant.

    Burn red, purple, gold
    Trees, lift your dying flames to
    Deep cathedral sky

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
