Tanka Tuesday — Season’s Flag

Bildresultat för green shades | Shades of green, Prints, Color mixing chart

green serves as flag
verdant announcement
upon which seasons hang
spring green to summer lawn,
fall’s fade to yellow,
and winter’s lack

Compression form poem
note:  rhymezone categorizes “lack” as having a 90 rhyme rating

Hello everyone. Happy October! My favorite month is finally here!! This week, choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. Think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.

    Great job Lisa…also green is my favorite color. The shade of green that the Peanuts cartoons use for grass.
