Time Glass Challenge – Tanka – January 13, 2015

in the autumn wind
swirling around the garden
red and orange leaves
dark* merry Morris dancers
harbingers of cold winter

G.s.k. ‘15

 Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s Time Glass Challenge

* Inspired by Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels – he invented the Dark Morris Dancers – harbingers of winter inspiring the creation of  real Morris groups such as the Witchmen Morris and Jack Frost Morris.
