Crocuses and I make bold;
Time wears many coats
Of blossom, rays, rain, and ice,
Thus, my words will don them too.
Antonia Sara Zenkevitch
This is my first attempt at a tanka poem, doing my best to follow the guidelines at Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. I like the challenge of trying different forms; each reframes my perception of a subject or sensation and so expands my horizons.
