“colourful leaves” – tanka story – September 9, 2015

in the morning
walking among colourful leaves
their rustling sound
speaks to me of chestnuts
and jelly like persimmons

autumn song
sung by the crackling leaves
burning in a pyre
orange fire among red leaves
in my neighbour’s raked lawn

colourful leaves
climb up the old house’s walls
bright perky red
nearby – an evergreen tree
autumn harmony

these colourful leaves
so beautiful to see today
announce winter
and white crispy snow
among barren trees

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
