Leaf litter – #TankaTuesday

Scent of falling leaves
Not quite floral, not quite musk,
Signals change to come

Ah, fall – I dread it because it means winter, my least favorite season, is coming. There’s a reason I live below the Mason Dixon line, and part of it is that I don’t like cold.

This was written for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #198, poet’s choice.

    lol, there is a reason I live north of the Mason Dixon line and it is because I can’t survive southern summers 😉 (I have tried a few, including TX, OK and SC) Nice haiku.

    I don’t like any weather in extreme. I know there’s petrichor. But I wonder is there a name for autumn’s musty leaf fall smell?

    With hubby working from home… more local family visits and now two visiting kitties, and the Carrot Ranch double whammy rodeo… I’ve been a little hard pressed to keep up with comments and extra visits. Hoping all is well with you and yours. ~Jules
