Autumn

colorful leaves

Choka, Japanese Long Form Poetry

the heat has vanished

first cool day of late summer

my thoughts turn to fall

cool crisp air and turning leaves

oranges, reds, browns

trees thin, branches reappear

falling leaves rustle

in the autumn wind bringing

a shift in sounds in nature

(envoy or hanka)

true love of autumn

the start of spending time by

the fire, entwined

rekindling the romance

reaffirmation of vows
