Sere winter blushes

Ancient wood wears fairytales

Springs lightly to life

Hope renewed as dark days pass

Buried in confetti clouds

Colleen’s tanka challenge

  9. Sue, I love your use of the word ‘sere.’ I looked it up and love how the choice of just that one word changed the meaning of your Tanka. Your photos emphasize the imagery in my mind. Excellent. ❤

    Confetti clouds! Fabulous and gorgeous. We are frozen in early spring with temps in the 30s. The upside is that the cherry blossoms haven’t dropped!
