Here is the very first of Colleen Chesebro’s 24 Seasons Syllabic Poetry Challenge, No. 1 Tanka Tuesday.
We are to write poetry using the current season words. A list was provided. I decided to use “harvest moon,” and this is a tanka 5/7/5/7/7.
parched forest’s rapture
beneath autumn’s harvest moon
nimbus clouds emerge
sparkling stars disappear
Mother Nature’s magic trick
Embrace your inner child with poetry. D. L. Finn
