Autumn Lamplight

“Autumn … in my opinion, the most beautiful season and today I love to challenge you to create haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form with the given classical kigo, autumn lamplight (aki no hi). Here is an example:”

I teach spelling to my child —
autumn rain

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
