Very sweet! Where did the pics come from?
Thanks, Bigi. The poem is my first attempt at tanka, an ancient, Japanese verse form. The pics are photos I took some time ago reworked with Photoshop filters.
This is very interesting because when I first read your poem it in some way reminded me of a haiku. Since it did not have the required haiku form I didn’t mention it. At least I had the right geographical area!!!
It does remind one of haiku. I actually started with that form then did some research and found tanka, which is 5 lines with specific syllable numbers for each line. It took a long time to figure it out and I’m not even sure I’ve actually written one. But it was fun trying.
