Two Flaming Jades – Tanka – August 30, 2015

two flaming jades
shine in the dark country side
caught in the headlights
the cat crouching in the road
contemplates eternity

Written for:

Carpe Diem Time Machine #15 Jade where we can also read these delightful haiku from the past:

His hanging shoulders
The jaded eyes say it all
Pocket is empty.

Jaded thoughts
Nix positive growth
Jolt of verve

Wise are the women
consorting with the foxes,
coaxing jade to sing.

roaring thunder
water colored like jade
mingles with sunlight
