Thank you swissotter
For bringing back haiku thread
Always fun to do

We can also write
a tanka, it is thirty-
One syllables, one
Line, or five lines five, seven
Five, seven, seven. To try.

The Wind is beating
Against my blinds, rattling
Slices of metal
Like bones, oh wait, Halloween
Was last week, the ghosts are gone.

(That‘s a tanka....am out of practice).

Underfoot crunching
Of those rainbow coloured leaves
Autumn brings pleasure.
