Grove

Whispery zephyr
across my line of vision
sets leaves to rattling,
shivering bones a message
both longing and redemptive.

For Hannah’s prompt to the Real Toads: BAMBOO FOREST

  1. I love that you chose to write a tanka for this challenge. Those leaves do rattle when the wind is high. Love all your words.
