Waiting for Spring – A #Tanka

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

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.

Waiting for Spring

Winter winds beckon –
as gray mists shroud the mountain,
nature springs anew.
Just when I think it’s over
Mother Nature throws a blow.
