Tanka Tuesday

A #Colorado Spring – A #Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge. This week, I tweaked the prompt word of “fire” to “fiery,” and I left the word “rain.”

Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can alter the meaning of your Tanka poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry. Play with the words for different reactions.

The best poetry has layers of meaning.

Blown by winter gales –
field grasses dry and fallow,
fiery flames devour.
The meadow choked with dark smoke
mourns the delay of spring rains.

    1. Thanks, Viva. We have had little to no moisture this year and the wildfires have been raging. The chinook winds have been horrible. I hope we get some rain this summer or Colorado will be fighting fires until the first snow. Yikes. ❤
