Autumn's Sweet Song

like ballet dancers

in colourful pinafores

an impromptu dance

choreographed by the wind

leaves dance to Autumn's sweet song








for Nathan's contest "Tanka (Season)"

    I haven't heard that word "pinafores" for ages and it lends a delightful essence of a time from the past. A wonderful entry Francine; wish you all the best! Love Elizabeth
