Autumn Light and Words….

autumn leaves tau ku

….and a ???

When I was participating at a lot of poetry prompt blogs, years ago, this poetry style (with two syllables for the  second line) was one of my favorites.

Now, I can’t remember the name of that particular poetry form.

Any ideas?

Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy this encore!

PS:  I found the answer, right after I wrote this post, 😉 it’s called, Tau-Ku, you can read more about this type of poetry HERE.

Wishing You a Wonderful Week!

A Tanka Moment: Spring Thaw

This is a poem from the archives and my first attempt at Tanka poetry. 

I hope you enjoy it for the first time, or perhaps, once again! 😉

It has definitely “thawed” here in BC, only a bit of snow left up on the higher mountains. Everything else is starting to bloom! 🙂

How is your weather?

Have a Wonderful Weekend! 🙂
