any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
I like the way that you have written a tanka that we can see and hear, Sumana. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the idea of white darkness.
I have never managed to write a Tanka. You make it look easier than I suspect it is.
Very evocative tanka, Sumana!
Days stretch out like sparrow's wings...Lovely idea.
Yes, I do like those stretchy wings. This is a timely reminder that spring will soon return.
ha. spring will be here soon enough...i like the use of the colors in this....
I like the grass melting in joy ~ Lovely tanka, thanks ~
