August Stanza 26

It is August and so Jane is doing : a chain of images each one suggested by the last word in the preceding poem. They’ll be short, a single image of just a few lines. It will be interesting to see where it ends up by the end of the month.

Kat will be doing short 3,4, or 5 line poems no syllable counts of rhymes, starting with the word ‘August’ on the first day. The last word of the poem will be the first word of day two’s poem, and so on until the end of the month.

Finally I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.

Today’s Poem is a Tanka.

Away summer blows

Chill nips my fingers and toes

Thousands of rain drops

Fall onto the roofs plip plop

Tomorrow may be summer.💜

    Raining here too, Willow. Fall is definitely in the air. Mixed feelings about that! ❤️

    I think you have captured the spirit of England rather well here, Willow
