#Haiku Happenings #9: Jade Li’s latest #tanka for my current #Haikai Challenge!
dewy flags unfurl
to fall wind’s bright trumpets
tired crickets now sleep
morning glories open us
to the new day’s chorus

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge. Frank says:
This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either the cricket (koorogi) or the morning-glory (asagao).
