This Thursday, The United States celebrates Thanksgiving. As Autumn progresses towards winter, the last color of autumn leaves fade, the last holdouts fall. It’s truly a time of dying, so a holiday that commemorates gratitude is a refreshing sign of contradiction.

This week’s kigo is Thanksgiving. Write your haikai poem (haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, renga, troiku, etc.) that includes or references this holiday.

As always:

Here’s how the challenge works:
1. Write your haikai poem (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, renga, etc.)
2. Ping-back to the Challenge by placing a link to it in your post.
3. Comment with a link to your post.

Good Writing!

Happy Thanksgiving!
