Chinook – Tanka – August 30, 2014

land of northern lights
in the dead of winter’s freeze
from the pacific
blows the warming chinook
bringing comfort for a few days

warming sunless days
Anchorage greets the chinook
taking off parkas
glorying in the brief noon light
a reminder of summer

  1. Lovely, Georgia. I realize after thinking about Chinook is in February in Alberta but in the East we have is around October which is almost a week of very warm weather which used to be called Indian summer…of course referring to First Nations…so I don’t know what we call it anymore. My cousin lives in Alberta and is familiar with Chinook. Now if only I lived more north to see Northern Lights…some day I shall take that trip.

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
