I hope you're keeping warm during this late autumn season. Temperatures in my area have dipped, and nights can be very cold. I often wrap a favorite quilt around me.
With the season in mind, writer Colleen Chesebro invites us to select at least one descriptive word (Kigo) from her list to use in a poem. I've chosen long nights, autumn winds, and quilt.
Below is a simple tanka, with syllables of 5-7-5-7-7. I'd love to know if you relate to this seasonal experience.
