Everything under the sun
Laughter and crying
Giggles and joyful tears flow
Making lovely memories
Crisp, fresh autumn air
Inhaling the seasons change
Stirs old memories
I substituted “inhaling” and “fresh” for the given prompt words.
A natural progression
I replaced “row” with “progression” for this challenge.
Telltale sign of change is here
Loved ones gathering
Watching holiday countdown
Inspired by Colleen’s weekly Tanka challenge.
water splashes on
singing the song of nature
the life blood of all
Linked to the prompt “music” from Poets on the Page.
Browsing my blog feed I found a few tanka this week that were beautifully written for the prompt words autumn and chapel. Though I haven’t participated in this new-to-me challenge, the words inspired me to give it a go.
autumn colors peak
horizon’s vivid splendor
behind the chapel
old oak tree reaches upward
touching Heaven so slightly
Life is a journey
Too many race their way through
Slow the pace enjoy
Linked to Ronovan’s weekly haiku prompt.
The weather has been abnormally warm here of late. I image that will change soon enough.
Summer like weather
Warm sunny cloud free skies
Trick us – cold comes soon
Haiku Horizons weekly prompt seemed very appropriated given the above – and that Trick or Treat just passed! 🙂
Clearing the trees of color
My heart void of what I need
Your grace fills my thirsty soul

Today wraps up 31 poems in 31 days, or OctPoWriMo. It has been a fun event, getting me back to writing again, and a bit of a challenge, too, as I reckon it should be. It is hard to say how well I’ll do after this month; the holidays and all are upon us and I tend to fall out of the writing-mode. Maybe this year will be different!
