Autumn Shindig Invitation

Please post a link to your favorite fall artwork, photograph or poem below!

Five Alive

seeds fly
up sky high
letting the wind
find their inner birds until warm earth calls

Welcome to my Autumn Shindig!

Please post a seasonal link here or in the comments:

Notes: My poem is my first ever tetractys, or a 5-lined, syllable-counting poetry form, organized as follows:

Line 1 – 1 syllable
Line 2 – 2 syllables
Line 3 – 3 syllables
Line 4 – 4 syllables
Line 5 – 10 syllables

To rhyme or not to rhyme, hmmm. Here’s an example from the talented Aussie poet, Kathryn Apel:

as teacher
flees in terror,
huntsman spider ignorant of error.

Final note: This is my first attempt to use inlinkz. It’s a dry run for getting it to work when I host Poetry Friday this Friday! I’d really appreciate you adding a link. I need to know it’s working!!
