Inspired Tanka – “fog & change”

“fog & change”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ready for springtime
summertime’s warmth vibrant color
falls, fog fraught mornings
winters frost frills freezing fog
natures  changing seasons

~~~~~~~~~~~

fog blinded my mind
inspiration lost in time
did the challenge but
Jane Dougherty tanka wow
now changed my perception

~~~~~~~~~~~

a poets choice words
their heartfelt  emotions
transcribed with much thought
how they might inspire change
clear the fog from woeful  minds

~~~~~~~~~~~

a fires burning
foggy smoke white winter breaths
flames dancing changing
winters orchestra jamming
invites natures choir sing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Inspired by Jane Dougherty

    1. Your tanka had me visiting memories like: The Greek Islands, Maltase’s Islands, Gibraltar, Sardinia, French Rivera, Wilhelmshaven – Germany, Norway, Denmark, Libya, Izmir – Turkey, Cyprus, Lincolnshire coast, Yorkshire coast, Lancashire coast, Devonshire coast, a tiny bit of the Northern Ireland coast line, not sure, Ballykelly rings a bell, and my favourite the Welsh coast from Milforhaven to Pennar- 3 of my childhood years aged 7 to 10.
