Autumn Symphony

not a whispering
or a rustling in the leaves
but a symphony
of senses: smells and colours
proclaim the end of the year

Kim M. Russell, 2016


My response to Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #29 autumn’s voice

In this penultimate episode of the Tanka Splendor month, the prompt is autumn’s voice, in which the challenge is to create tanka in which we listen to autumn’s voice: the tough wind, the rustling of the fallen leaves, the hard smashing rains, the sound of birds on their way to warmer places and more.

just the wind
the rustling of fallen leaves
and the soft rain
together with the one I love
I discover the voice of autumn
