Tanka Tuesday: Acorns

For Colleen Chesebro’s poetry challenge. This week’s word prompts are Bells & Past.

Acorn cups empty,

oak mast fallen, carpeting

dry earth. No bells ring.

Once, this time was electric,

the past chimes with memories.

    1. You’d think it would the opposite since you’re closer to Colleen’s time zone than I am. The dverse responses always amaze me. The post hits my inbox at nine in the evening and even if I open it straight away, there are always several posts already up! How do they do it?
