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
