Escape the office
If only for the one hour
Enjoy the sunshine
Surely it's a sign of spring
Driving with the windows down

Chilly autumn wind
Strips the last leaves from the trees
Tossing them around
Slowly sinking down to earth
They make a russet carpet

Swollen moon rises
Slowly in the eastern sky
An hour too early
Man thinks he is in control
But the sun keeps her own time

Horizontal snow

Clinging to budding branches

A cold, damp wind blows

Under a charcoal grey sky

Who of us can call this spring?

30 days ago people were challenged to "Write one tanka a day.". I am shocked and pleased I managed to rise to the challenge. There were 1 or 2 that slid a little past midnight before I posted them, but all in all I did it! I have never be able to "get" any form of poetry before so I am twice as shocked that I did it.

I'm not looking for pats on the back, or "atta boy"'s, just let me enjoy it.

Reading other peoples tanka was very interesting and enjoyable!

P.S. 1 of them got someone kissed... that is full of win. You know who you are ;)

Sun sets in the west
Finally we are finished
It was a good run
And quite a challange to me
Still surprised I did them all

Night is here again
It's time to rest and relax
The house is quiet
What to do with these few hours
Be productive or just play

The sky is cloudless
And the temperature is warm
What cruel trick is this?
It's after Thanksgiving now
It really should be snowing

Walking down the street
Fallen leaves crunch underfoot
Bright sun shining down
Fleeing geese pause at a pond
Will this be the last nice day?

It's so very dark
And the blowing wind is cold
Going here to there
Must I really leave the warmth
I'd much rather stay at home

No longer autumn
And it's still not quite winter
Leaves have all fallen
Morning frost on the window
But still not snow on the ground

Whats this on my bed
Snuggled up under blankets
A little gray cat
You look all cozy and warm
With your friend, the big gray cat

Icy cold stars shine
Upon a frozen landscape
A frigid wind blows
Chasing fallen leaves about
Desolate trees creak and groan

Tanka #21

Bright golden sunlight
Shining through evergreen trees
Fiery clouds burn
Flames licking cold leafless trees
Quenched by the blue evening sky

Sitting at my desk
Waiting for the words to come
I started out strong
Now it seems to be harder
Happy I tried it at all

Oh! The letter came
Containing your Evil Plans
So much to prepare
Before Decembers event
And a chance to meet new friends

Four little black eyes
Peering out of the cage bars
They see me coming
Two rats climbing on the door
Take us out we want to play

Bright sun and cold air
Greet me as I leave my home
The leaves all fallen
Leave spindly branches bare
They will bloom again come spring

Night is closing in
And darkness covers the land
Stars dimly glowing
Nocturnal creatures roam free
While a dying moon watches

The clock must be slow
A minute seems like an hour
Fridays are like this
I should be getting work done
Instead I am writing this
