Summer Fades to Fall by donnadiann
Tanka Poetry Contest contest entry

Leaves of gold and red
brown and yellow tossed in too

summer tiptoed out

Fall's rainy breeze wrapped 'round me;
hummingbirds left ruby glass.


Author Notes
Everything from summer is still in the yard--with 80's still forecast for next week, but fall dumped leaves all over my yard--so I watch as summer fades to fall. But today is nice and breezy with a touch of rain--my excuse to leave the yard work until later.
