Color me Autumn

I love to look at the fall colors…from my home in Florida.  By the time the leaves have turned in Minnesota, the temperatures there are very close to the worst part of winter that I experience in North Florida.

Whether or not you know it, Florida has fall colors too, but it isn’t reflected in the leaves.  

Here’s a Tanka about the changes we see.


Northern autumn hues,

form orange-red-gold-brown rainbows,

winters harsh warning.

Florida’s shining fall colors;

 oranges, lemons, limes and light.
