Autumn tears

No poetry challenge, but I’m doing tankas. Join in if you feel like it.

Autumn garden sighs

as leaves settle, red and brown,

crisped dry like the tears

barring my face, farewell smears

you will never wipe away.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  2. Beautiful tanka. Are you saying goodbye to summer or to a departing love? I love autumn. The fallen leaves, cooler days, apple cider, pumpkin pie, the warmth of the hearth fire – all speak of the season.
