A New Day Dawns – A #Tanka

Focus on the image below and breathe… Use your five senses and experience a new day.

Deep in the forest
pine needle musk scents the air
near a babbling brook.
Rising dawn yellows the sky
announcing a brand new day.

Forest = earth, and brook = water: Part of my poetry challenge. ❤

  1. Beautiful tanka. Your photo looks surreal, I feel as if I could step into it and stroll over there and check out the bridge. And perhaps see a nature folk relaxing and enjoying the day. 🙂
