OctPoWritMo Day 15 – Tanaga – October 15, 2015


autumn colours


Vibrant reds and yellows glow
Brighter under rain and snow
But once the snow melts away
All that’s left is slushy grey

My heart beats now just for you
And you say you love me too
Did you say that to LynnGay
Whilst kissing her yesterday?

I’ve chosen the Tanaga style for this poem. The Tanaga is a Filipino style of poetry with four-line stanzas with the syllable count of 7-7-7-7, and a rhyme scheme of AABB. Tanagas traditionally don’t have a title per se. I’ve written this form once before, here.

  1. Yet another form to learn…how you teach me so much!! I enjoyed this one but your photos…wow!! I think we are seeing the last week of this but who knows lately with warm weather on the horizon but surely not today…cold and wet.


    • We put this up on B&P a while back, you may have already written on. Glad you enjoyed the post and the photo too … we’ve entered into the rainy part of autumn here … still in the teens but once the sun goes down, they’re the lower teens.
