back yard Tanka moment

the Ozark plateau 
     sun frames mount’s splendid beauty 
sun sets in Ozarks 
           pear trees glisten burnt orange 
               a sweet, juicy pear drops, thud!

    Pears do that this time of year don't they, I've yet to actually hear one land though :) Nice poem, enjoyed.
