Night's Wind

by Joan E.

gusts startle
stars and wake moon
woven between branches
lacy web
holds our dreams


Tanka Poetry Contest contest entry


Thanks for reading this post--it was inspired by the prompt "night's wind" at my Pasadena poetry group. I was pleased to find eileen 0204's parallel "Into the Night" artwork.

It is a busy time--we have been attending our 50th reunion at Pomona College since Thursday, and we leave for China on Tuesday. I will take my computer and try to keep up with FanStory. Enjoy the next few weeks of springtime or its equivalent in your time zone.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
