#Tanka Tuesday: Pleasant & Read

Another butterfly cinquain for Colleen Chesebro’s tanka Tuesday prompt.


Mild breeze

rattles red leaves.

In their falling wind dance,

I see snowflakes swirling, winter


though flames flutter in the treetops,

where birds spread wings to catch

the gold-feathered

sun god.

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.

    1. I’m glad you like it. I had to work to get the syllables right at the end.
      It’s probably the last day of warm weather today—70°F. It’s going to get unpleasant next week.
