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

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
