Tanka: Fallen Leaves


In autumn light
fragrance of the past
feeds the soil
fallen leaves
attune the stars.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Kim! I only started blogging in March and began to take part in the Carpe Diem haiku prompts late August. I love what Kristjaan is doing there and take part whenever I can. I hope it is not too cold in Norfolk and wish you a blessed rest of the weekend! :o)
