Memory Tanka 01 - Hidden - Poem by Thomas Donnelly

Hidden amongst leaves
A shy blossom turns her head
In the fading light
Lift her dark petals skyward
They seem a little softer

    Marvelous poems, Thomas. I wouldn't mind some factory verse cranked out by you. The imagistic poems, especially the tanka, Hidden, can match any poem, say, of Issa or Basho or Han Shan. Keep it up. A welcome relief to read such good verse here on poemhunters. Onward. Warren Falcon (Report) Reply
