Heaven-hued



 Today's Poetic Bloomings form challenge is called a Bussokusekika.
  It is a Japanese poetic form that follows the rules of tanka, except there are six lines with three seven syllable lines that end the poem for a 5-7-5-7-7-7 syllable count.

 

Dawn, September-hued
Hints at heaven-mirrored sweeps
Streets paved with charred gold
Beneath velvet folds of mist
Earth, a table harvest-heaped
Man, a monger mercy-kissed
Grappling with Hope’s ling’ring Weight/Wait

For all the glorious joy September holds 
it cannot completely fill That Place which waits/weights for Heaven.

...while it grants golden glimpses!
