A Change of Seasons

Persuaded by time, and clothed in rust, trees reveal a changed homecoming... Illusions of my childhood drift away with falling leaves
For Nathan's Contest

    Hullo, Carrie. Tanka that employ memories, illusion thereof, etc, are great -- just as this tanka of yours is.

    ‡ Seasons Change, Like A Song From 'Expose' Back In The 80's, Dear Beautiful Carrie. Time Does Often Reveal Things We Once Thought Not. Homecoming Has Always Brought About These Beautiful Images Of Queens. You Are So Gifted. So Very Rare. So Beautiful. Have A Joyful Evening, And I Loved Your Poem. Love, Rachel ‡

    Lovely tanka. Color, motion and a touch of emotion.
