Friday Tanka

I’m particularly fond of the Japanese Tanka poetry. Creating an image in a short space of time. While the traditional poetry was often used in the Imperial Courts and between courting couples I find it is a superb way of capturing modern life and emotions.

Today we went to the coast. The sun was shining but it was freezy cold!


Sharing a moment
On this glorious spring day
April in Yorkshire
Lulling waves caress the sand
Winds roar and we hold on tight.
