Fall Foliage

This is written for Frank’s haikai challenge #3.  We are writing about fall foliage (hence the title of this post) and can either use those words or reference the image. I wrote a tanka based on one of my experiences several autumns ago, compared with today.

A sad September:

Broken heart, falling leaves, these

Barren trees aren’t dead,

This was years ago, and now,

I know beauty’s in the cold.
