serenading the moon


She sings of skylarks and loons-
hangs up the moon,
plucks loneliness, low hanging
fruit she dries and beads-
old blues made new.







loving Kerry's tanka prompt.

  2. There is a certain whimsy to this descriptive tanka, a romanticism connected to the mystique of womanhood. Very nicely done.
