Candid Reflections

by Lady Jane


azure firmament
salutes alabaster wisps
shadows weave and wane
as mother nature's fora
candidly warbles below



Another photo I took just before the thunderstorm and the double rainbow yesterday. I love the beauty in the skies...I guess I just love clouds.

Thanks for reading

fora-forum/gathering/grouping - Mother Nature's followers is the intention here, not flora or fauna (although, fauna might work also )

warble: to trill/to sing

Tanka is a classic form of Japanese poetry related to the haiku with five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables. (5, 7, 5, 7, 7)

The Japanese tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as â??short song," and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.

One of the oldest Japanese forms, tanka originated in the seventh century, and quickly became the preferred verse form not only in the Japanese Imperial Court, where nobles competed in tanka contests, but for women and men engaged in courtship.
