Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge #Tanka – Autumn & Leaves

Colleen’s alternative poetry challenge NaNoWriMo is running: giving us a pair of words and for us to then use not them, but synonyms in our poems!

This weeks words to switch are~:

Autumn & Leaves

Snow, Autumn, Leaves, Winter, Leaf

I used Indian summer, and fall for autumn and farewell and foliage for leaves, within a tanka.

Indian summer
I bid you a fond farewell
For winter is here
The gold foliage of fall
Gives way to cold, bare winter
