Autumn Feast: A Tau-Ku Poem


Mountain Ash in full bloom.

Birds sing!

A constant feast for the senses.


I think everything about Autumn is a constant feast for the senses! πŸ˜‰

  5. maybe it’s too early I’m mispelling everthing anyhoo you do fill all my senses

  6. Hi Sandy, I changed the background color and the header but it’s the same theme I’ve had for quite a while. Glad you like it. I’m still learning things about WP. I just wish they’d revert to black color text for their default, not grey. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Joe, Thanks dear. The text didn’t show up on the photo as clearly as I had hoped that’s why I typed the poem below too.

    Hi Brenda, And Happy Autumn back to you. I’m glad you liked this work!

  10. Hi Tammie, Thanks friend. Good to see you again. I’m guessing Italy was hard to leave behind? πŸ˜‰

    Hi Harshad, Thanks Harshad. We were clicking in over at OSI at exactly the same time last night, did you note that? Always fun to be first there LOL.

    Hi Tony, Thanks so much Tony.

    Hi 4Joy, I actually found out about Tau-Ku over at OSI, quite a while back. There was a Tau-Ku Poetry day posted that I participated in. It’s an interesting poetry form: 6-2-8 syllables. The second line is always a challenge. πŸ˜‰

    Happy Week and I look forward to visiting all of you.

    I hope you’ll stop by at my other blogs too. I’ve posted the latest links to those, above. G

  11. Interesting choice, addressing constancy by writing about a season of change. Well done. Lovely photo, too.

  12. Beautiful image and words…..I love fall and its changing colors, but living in the Houston area I don’t see it.

  13. a riot of colour; no wonder the birds sing; much love…

  14. Hi Ron, That is so true about Autumn being a transitional and changing time. But the beauty that this season brings year after year, remains a constant. I’m glad you enjoyed this work. πŸ™‚

    Hi Susie, Oh, that’s too bad. I love enjoying all of the seasons but I know that’s not the case in so many places, more as time goes by too. 😦 We don’t get much snow here in Interior BC and that I do miss. Thanks for your kind words.

    Hi Gillena, I love Mountain Ash trees: their beautiful colored berries and unique shapes. Birds in the branches, even better!

    Happy Week and thanks so much for your comments, G

  19. It is that time of year. Apt words for the hawthorn.

  20. I love Fall, Gerladine. πŸ™‚ You have us a good start for tomorrow, the first day of Fall.
    Fall in our part of Texas means that the days won’t be so hot, I didn’t say get cool, did I?
