I've another poem to share. This week, poet Colleen Chesebro asks participants to focus on the last breath of Autumn (October 22 - November 5). We are to use at least one kigo word (a Japanese word referring to the use of words that indicate the season) and any syllabic form. I've created two tankas.
My kigo words are: winds, chilly, bare branches, and Hunter's moon. If you're unfamiliar with the Hunter's moon, it is officially full at 3:35 p.m. EST on October 28. Won't you please let me know if you watch it rise? 😊
Aspens abound in my area and often appear in my stories. Today, they take center stage in the poem below. I hope you enjoy it.
All the best,
