24 Seasons Syllabic #Poetry Challenge, No. 1 #TankaTuesday #tanka #poetrycommunity

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.

moon and clouds over forest

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

    1. Thank you, Miriam. Not sure if we’ll see it either. Depends on whether the storm dips this far south. Cloudy is good this time of year though 🙂

  1. Oh, I love the magic trick, Denise. Mother Nature is so full of surprises. Well done, my friend. I’m so thrilled you’re here for the first new challenge at the new blog. Thanks so much. 🧡

    1. Thank you, Colleen. She sure is full of surprises 😉 I wouldn’t miss the first new challenge, and love the idea. xo
