Dreams of spring – Tanka – September 12, 2016

Carpe Diem Special #218 Dolores’ 2nd “dreaming of spring”

This is the second special dedicated to Dolores of   “Ada’s Poetry Alcove”, a tanka about life’s cycle:

flowers drop their petals
summer gone
they sleep in cold earth
dreaming of spring

And here is our host’s lovely tanka:

a last leaf
fights with the fall storm
its color fades
struggling against the wind
it surrenders

© Chèvrefeuille

And now for my attempt:

leaf in wet grass

as two lovers kiss
on a park bench
even without blackbird song
spring dreams return

  1. Brava, cara! your header is also stunning. Yesterday at 16:30 i was flying from Regina to Montreal, leaving a blue sky and bright sun, facing sunset much sooner as I approached more East, and then clouds formed beneath the plane and then rumbling of the plane as we passed through a storm and back to clearer skies just as we arrived Toronto (my connection to Montreal)…the harvest moon accompanied me all the way home. I just had to share this as your header brought it all to life. xx


    • I saw your photo in Facebook … how lovely … but I don’t think I’d like to be in a plane with a storm going on outside. The harvest moon must be fantastic seen from a plane! Thanks dear for sharing with me. xx
