The End of Summer – A Tanka

Autumn winds entreat –

slivers of silvery moon

burnished in the slough,

fairy nymphs crying raindrops

mourning the end of summer.

Colleen Chesebro

Happy Friday!

  5. Beautiful,Colleen. Summer’s fairies will return. Autumn’s fairies are peeking from beneath the leaves and testing their wings.

  7. That’s a nice poem, although I actually quite like the end of summer because it also means the end of mosquito bites. 🙂
