#Tanka 25 — Camellia

camellia

Transient glory,
this Camellia moment:
better here than not.
Remember that day she wore
her red-flowered poplin dress.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this poetic form, you might like to read my earlier post at https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2012/12/07/tanka-3-a-brief-guide-to-the-31-syllable-poetic-form/ and then perhaps have a go at composing a tanka of your own. Please do feel free to post links to your poems in “comments” to this post.

  1. Saturday morning
    at my desk, reading your words.
    They cause me sweet distraction.
    Alas, I must break this spell
    for my garden waits for me…

    Hey now! That was fun, even if my comment was a bit cheesy. Hope you have a pleasant day Sarah. Happy Easter. πŸ™‚

    • Gaa!!! Messed up line 3. Let’s change it to: “They distract me so.”

    • I missed this comment. Sorry, Phil. You must have wondered what I meant by the rest of your tanka being invisible (probably thought I was insulting you!). I must admit to having been confused by you saying you’d messed up line 3, when I’d overlooked the original. It’s a great tanka. Thank you for your contribution πŸ™‚

      • No worries Sarah. I didn’t think you were insulting me at all. I was just confused – a common condition with me… πŸ˜€
