Bid to last the day
Wind shakes the color from tree
Death plunge of a leaf
A bid to summit
The crackle beneath my feet
Dislodged stone slides down
Autumn hike on a mountain
Tests my feet but frees my soul
Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge. Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves. This week the words were Fall and Try. This week i decided to do both a haiku and a tanka.
Note – the photos are from a couple of years ago – we do not have any color yet.
