Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Tuesday Challenge|Month of November Poetry Prompts: Autumn & Leaf|TANKA



trees stand naked... bare

overcome as days shorten


foliage in all coloured hues

floating... swooping... landings found

Autumn & Leaves


 books holders of magic, special guarded books

bound in invisible cloaks, each their special cover

faith in nature, the key that will them open, believe

spells cast from those that doubt, fake spells

conspired for and by evil, connived by gremlins.

causing wars, discrimination, winds prevailing, allowing hate

muti is what it is going to take and in books of magic the medicine found

those that hold the key open a book cast a spell,  make all just, for all of us.
