Tanka: Beech Tree

piling up
leaves spin and weave
warm blankets
coloured by sunlight
in the wild, October wind

  1. Stunning images Xenia – very rich for the subject and great capture (for the right lighting)! I just want to dive in and snuggle up, which brings me to your lovely, wonderful tanka! Great job with it – and I suspect, for as appealing and enticing as it seems, it would be best if I didn’t snuggle up – LOL – have a wonderful week 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Pat and yes, as tempting as it is to dive into the leaves, it is probably better not to! 😁🍂🍁 A wonderful rest of the week to you too 🤗💖🐕 xxx
