Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #103 – Fall & Try #MicroPoetry

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Fall & Try


Road, Forest, Season, Autumn, Fall

Autumn hues seep through
Though summer attempts to stay
Nature has its way
Inevitable changes
As the world keeps on turning
