Autumn afternoon
we keep our distance
in dappled light
talking about the life
we haven’t shared

    The distance
    will always be filled
    with a shared unshared life

    autumn leaves fall
    the old stripper
    sheds her clothes ???

    This is such a lovely tanka, I've reread and shared it. Thank you for writing it.

    In dappled light, caring vanishes as 'tis whirled away. Well seen. _m

    cooler winds
    whirl to spin our fallen leaves
    centrifugal care
