and autumn leaves . . .
in a dream
I set out on a journey
to find you again

like classic Western Wind poem by anon
the speaker could be eight or eighty
I love the first two lines, packed full of atmosphere, with an extra poignant concluding three lines.
What Alan said. :)
Beautiful tanka. Thank you.
Excellent tanka, Stewart.
I also like the hint of ambiguity in the middle line.
Thanks for sharing
Evocative and full of the mystery and magic of autumn. Dreams often show us what we need to do…
Great use of smell in this one, Stewart. Made me think of Halloween, as if the smoke mesmerized the author and made him dream that night!
Wow. This creates instant atmosphere and intrigue. Thank you for sharing it with us.
