Dear friends, dear tanka poets,
It is my pleasure to bring a new Tanka Splendor challenge to you. This time I have chosen for the theme Cherry Blossom. I have an old Sakura in my backyard and I love it when it starts to bloom. Last year my Sakura bloomed at the end of February and that, of course, was worth a celebration.
I have written a lot of haiku about Cherry Blossoms, but I cannot recall that I have ever written a Tanka about Cherry Blossoms … so i think it is time for me to create my first Cherry Blossom tanka.
caresses the fragile blossoms
my Sakura has started to bloom
time to celebrate and dance
Well … and now it is up to you. You can submit your tanka inspired on Cherry Blossoms until next Sunday February 12th 10.00 PM (CET).
PS.: I have a small problem with inserting the linking widget, but I hope to solve that a.s.a.p.
