Paint the World with Words has a Monday prompt that changes each week.. Ths is only the second time I’ve participated…last week we were invited to write a Limerick! This week it’s a tanka! Yeah one of my favorite forms!
Autumn is passing
how autumn ages
the hoar frost creates white fields
crunch along the path
soon autumn will just pass on
youthful winter soon begins
Wow! I am a fan of Tanka Poems as well, they carry so much of imagery and is just like one writing images! You have done an incredible job with this. I liked how you personified Autumn here and the changes in weather is depicted so aptly here! Awesome tanka for sure! Thanks for participating Bastet, its amazing to see you guys write for the challenge.
Happy you enjoyed this tanka. I really love the Japanese poetry forms. They fit in well with my personal way of writing…short and to the point. Although I do like the tradtonal European styles as well…actually…I like writing poetry, even when I write prose 😉
I agree with you! I too am fond of writing to-the-point poems at times and you did a fair job with writing this.
thanks a lot Amreen!
🙂 You’re welcome!
