autumn bounty

 

harvest harmonized

pheasant struts from ripe cornfield

deer leaps pumpkin patch

culmination of seasons

color life deep rich orange

My tanka response to Ramblings of a Writer’s prompt: seasons, harmonized.

 

one of these things is not like the others

 
Did you happen to see who parked that old school bus in our ripe cornfield?

(clipping two-for-one coupons, ignoring date of old advertisement)

Must be local school board member implementing common core standards.

(weather report for last chance of severe thunderstorm activity)

Kids should not be bullied into eating apples on abandoned bus!

(cry of neighbor’s peacock sounds like someone is torturing a cat)

With the corn price falling, maybe we should leave rusty bus in the field.

(wondering how open-minded you can be before your brain rolls out?)
