No Streetlights – Tanka – March 3, 2015


walking tonight
no streetlights guide our footsteps
dark country road
yet soft shimmering moonlight
surrounds us like fairy dust

  1. My goodness, Georgia! I don’t know where to start commenting on this post! The tanka is so dreamy — with dreamy music — but wow, what a beautiful haiga!!! I really like the composition — this is SO good.


    • Thanks … I should have put up the original like you did .. the edit was really dramatic! I’m glad you enjoyed the haiku and haiga .. and Adrian von Ziegler is sooooooooo great!

      • Yes, you should start doing that — it’s a good teaching tool for everyone — especially with the drastic edits. 🙂

        Again — great post!


        • Did it ad will have to remember for future to put up the originals … didn’t today either … the funny thing is … when I go back looking for the original, sometimes I can’t find it … I don’t mean that I’ve overwritten it .. never . I just don’t remember where I put the darn folder!


  2. Wow — now that is a HUGE difference!!!!! You lose the vineyard detail, but you gain a heck of a lot of drama, color-wise. The gamble paid off!!!
