24 Seasons #Syllabic #Poetry #Challenge, No. 7 #poetrycommunity #tanka #nature

Before the rain arrived, I took a walk downtown. Now the colors are visiting our house too.

Here is Colleen Chesebro’s 24 Seasons Syllabic Poetry Challenge #7. I used In the Sky words from the season list for my tanka poem 5/7/5/7/7:  autumn wind and ice or icy.

Beautiful fall colors in our town 🙂 Nevada City, CA

icy autumn wind
ahead of winter’s visit
stripes the tree’s glow
carelessly tosses those leaves
where gleeful children frolic

    1. Thanks, Vera ! I out after the rains stopped today and enjoying how bright and colorful it is right now.

    1. Thanks, Diana 🙂 There is so much joy in fall leaves. Even now I like to kick them around.

    1. Thank you, Teagan 🙂 I feel lucky to be able to enjoy the season here, I didn’t grow up with it. Hugs xo

    1. Thank you, Boz 🙂 We’d need a much better pile to cushion that landing! I like kicking the leaves as I walk now, less painful.

  1. I think adults can frolic too… on an outside walk (usually we walk the gym track) – I shuffled through some crispy leaves. 🙂

  2. Nevada City is such a beautiful place. Our son and his wife would love to live there. The tree and your poet-tree are both colorful and beautiful.
