Well I love October too it’s my second most favourite month and Autumn is my favourite season. I have chosen to do an Autumn Tanka.

I smell grey Autumn.
My eyes see russet and gold
Pure white feathers fall
Mournful honk as geese depart.
Cold rustling in the north wind

    Ohhhh, Willow! You’re back! I get some chilly vibes from your tanka. We had a touch of frost on our house roof this morning. The cold will be here in no time!

    Fall is here. We heard the geese, but I think they turned around to avoid Hurricane Ian. Your poem is beautiful.

    I’m guessing October is not your favourite?

    I love the Autumnal honk, Willow. It starts in August here on the South Coast and heralds the new season … 🧡
