#Haiku Happenings #1 (10/2/20): Ken Gierke’s latest #tanka for my current #Haikai Challenge!

early sunset
harvest moon rising
dancing leaves
wonderful colors
a treat for the eyes

The first full moon (of two) this October is the harvest moon which typically
appears in late September.  Many places (particularly in the northeast US)
are reporting fall colors weeks ahead of the norm.

This tanka is my response to three different prompts:
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #158: Harvest Moon
Carpe Diem – 8th Anniversary asks for a festive haiku or tanka.
Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge
No. 197, #SpecificForm: Tanka
Also shared withOpen Link Night #275 at dVerse Poets Pub
