24 Seasons Syllabic #Poetry #Challenge, No. 3 #TankaTuesday #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #poems #tanka #fall

Hi! Here is Colleen Chesebro’s 24 Seasons Syllabic Poetry Challenge, No. 3.

These are the season kigo words I chose for this week: pumpkin & cold dew. I did a tanka 5/7/5/7/7.

world record pumpkin
nestled in dawn’s salty cold dew
massive orange squash
awaits her adoring fans
harvest festival begins


The next From Finn’s Forest talks about special pumpkins 🙂

    1. Thanks, Colleen 🙂 I’m hoping to make the drive to attend this but if not I’m enjoying all the wonderful falls colors here. xo

    1. It sure couldn’t, Diana 🙂 I do love Harvest Festivals and miss the one we used to go to years ago.

      1. Some of them were painted as the Yellow Brick Road for the Wizard of Oz theme. All I could think of was that the inside must be slimy to sit in.

  1. You captured one of the many wonderful things about the autumn season: pumpkins! Love to walk through the patch and pick out a few, love to carve them, and my favorite is to bake and eat the pies! Thank you for sharing your haiku.

    1. Thank you, Karen 🙂 Yes, nothing like a walk through a pumpkin patch and picking a pumpkin. I love pumpkin pie, bread, and the seeds.

    1. Thanks, Robbie 🙂 It seems to be different harvests as what grows there fun to hear the differences.
