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!

Waiting for the First Snow: A Tau-Ku Poem

Waiting for the first snow.

White skies.

A longing: returning each Fall.

***

I snow. Especially the first snowfall of the year.

So fresh, clean and white. So many good memories brought to mind too.

We had so much snow on the Canadian Prairies when I was growing up.

Here in BC, not nearly as much now but still lovely to see, to walk in, to breathe the clean air.

Are you waiting for snow too?

Happy Week! 🙂

Sky Scanning: A Tau-Ku Poem

Thought it would be fun to try another Tau-Ku poem.

You can read more about this form of poetry here.  

It’s a bit cooler here today but it’s been so hot for the past couple of weeks.

I’m running on hardly any sleep. Even with a big ceiling fan, I’m up for hours at night.😦

I’ve been doing quite a bit of sky-scanning, at the end of each day. My inspiration for this post.

Happy Weekend.🙂
