Looking at the sky,
Thousand colours in a row.
Vibrant and so still,
Dancing across the white clouds.
Stunning us all with your beauty.

Autumn Leaves

Posted: November 28, 2013 in TANKA POEMS

Dancing in the wind,
Shaking calmly to and fro.
Falling to the floor,
Crunching below peoples feet.
Making the trees look naked!

A man stands alone,
Scarf and hat to keep him warm.
Watching people pass,
Never uttering a word.
Sun comes up and he is gone.

My head is pounding,
It’s going to explode soon.
Will not go away,
Nothing takes the pain away.
Headaches are horrible!

Temperature drops,
The air grows cold and chilly.
Jack frost visits us,
Painting landscapes icy white.
Silly people slide on paths!

I stand here again,
It’s cold and I’m so fed up.
I’m checking my watch,
You always keep me waiting.
Why can’t you turn up on time?
