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.


oh, deer!


ibex, ebex, imax, apex

it seems they’re all the sames

you cantaloupe with antelope

if you don’t know their names!
