birds fall silent
as leaves begin to fall
from the trees
an emoji is chosen 
as word of the year.

as ever, the red text contains hyperlinks that take you to another webpage where you can find out more

Some things never change (the seasons can be counted upon) but some things do change... interesting about the emoji being the word of the year...

I love the Tanka, Juliet. I'm not sure whether it is a juxtaposition or a turn, but it works brilliantly.

Lovely. And emoji, really?

Hi Juliet,

The tanka is lovely. Yes, as for the emoji, I suppose it is a way of expressing something without words.
Enjoy the weekend
