painted evening clouds

dance delightfully goodbye

relishing in love

with the moments that have passed

carrying joy to new paths

the snow breathes its voice

unsheltered strands of life sigh

brisk wind sending force

yet, the single reed summons strength

deep inside the love stands firm

Tanka #7: Gentle Snow

Japanese Yew Tree. Its green needles change to orange just before they fall from the tree during the winter season. Then the branches and twigs rest for awhile before regaining their beautiful, soft green needles in the Spring. Photo Credit: c. Jane H. Johann 11/21/2015 Palmyra, WI USA

snowflakes gently fall

quietly, unassuming

cover the landscape

Mother Earth graced with beauty

intricately softened joy
