CHANGING TREE TANKA

CHANGING TREE TANKA

Colors start to pop,

Trees shut down their leaves’ supply…

Green leaves turn colors:

Morphology is working

Just the same in ev’ry year!

–J.E.C.

People come from far

And near…”peeping” foliage…

Brighter is better:

Bus loads come en mass to shop.

Local business harvests crops!

–J.E.C.

A final push all

Benefit from folderol…

Festivals light skies:

Candied apples and brown bread

Folks ready for winter dead.

–J.E.C.

Railroad excursions,

Northeast woodland incursions…

Train cars filled with joy:

Steam or diesel pull the trains,

Nostalgic commerce makes gains!

OUR LAST SUPPER

OUR LAST SUPPER—UNTIL AUTUMN!

The flurry of activity

Was worth the effort you see…

This season’s last dinner

Til autumn or winter

For a neighborhood company.

Families show in the summer,

For others, their absence a bummer…

People go out,

Not stay in and pout–

On the 4th, we’ll be out in numbers!

Some will always gather to play,

Nickel and diming away…

Perhaps a bite

With one or two seems right,

While the rest of us try making hay!
