Focus on the image below and breathe… Use your five senses and experience a new day.

Deep in the forest
pine needle musk scents the air
near a babbling brook.
Rising dawn yellows the sky
announcing a brand new day.

Forest = earth, and brook = water: Part of my poetry challenge. ❤

 Happy Saturday! Thanks for stopping by. ❤

    1. Thank you and happy Saturday. I swear I could smell those pine needles all day yesterday when I was thinking of the Tanka. 😀

  1. Beautiful tanka. Your photo looks surreal, I feel as if I could step into it and stroll over there and check out the bridge. And perhaps see a nature folk relaxing and enjoying the day. 🙂

    1. Oh, yes. They are there disguised as the trees themselves. Thanks, E.C. I always love when you stop by. ❤

        1. I hope you join in. I have changed the challenge so you can write, Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun. There are detailed instructions, so you can feel assured you are on the right track. ❤
