Some Random Tanka….

#Haiku Happenings #2: Lady Nyo’s random #tanka!

Lady Nyo's Weblog


The fire of life

Is love. No exact measure

A whirling dervish

Hands in opposite display

Gathers in the miracle


Sound of frog-cries heard
A pale moon floats above pond
Fresh life is stirring
An early owl goes hunting
Wise mice scatter for cover


Cranes wheeled in the sky

Their chiding cries fell to hard earth

Warm mid winter day–

A pale half moon calls the birds

To stroke her face with soft wings

A cat sits dozing

Beneath a thorny rosebush

No foot can reach him

His paws retract the sharp claws

With a deep purr his eyes close.
