Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenges

The End of Summer – A Tanka

Autumn winds entreat –

slivers of silvery moon

burnished in the slough,

fairy nymphs crying raindrops

mourning the end of summer.

Happy Friday!

        1. I think it all comes down to looking for the good in people and seeing the “good” around you. Our world is so negative lately. It feels good to be part of something positive. ❤

          1. I am in total agreement about how there’s too much negativity in this our precious world and not enough positive. And every little piece, word, artistic expression should be encouraged and shared whenever possible. And to be a part of anyone’s or anything’s positivity, is pretty, pardon my French, ‘badass.’ 🙂

    1. Thank you, Viva. I have been concentrating on the “elementals.” I thought that was the perfect imagery. ❤
