Sarah Potter Writes

Pursued by the Muses of prose and poetry

#Tanka 39 — Peonies

Such extraversion,
peonies glow neon pink:
unmissable shout.
That girl with a crazy hat
brandishes her June paintbrush.

  2. I tried growing them once. Failed miserably! πŸ™‚ I would much rather read your lovely tanka about them.

    Wishing you a brilliant Tuesday, my talented friend!

    • They love the chalky dry soil in my garden. No special treatment at all.
      Wishing you a brilliant Tuesday, too. Sorry, for being so neglectful of late. Have been taking a long rest from blogging and writing, and getting some fresh air. Was feeling a bit jaded, but am starting to feel better now. Nearly there!

    • Thank you, Shey πŸ™‚ I’m getting the odd burst of creativity at the moment, but am mostly plugged in on recharge. Am being incredibly neglectful of my dear blogging friends, but finally have to take time out to do some long overdue jobs away from the PC, in between chilling out. Will be back soon — refreshed, creative, and sociable — and check out what everyone else has being doing/posting during my frequent absences. xxxxxxxxxx

    • Thank you, Sherri. Presently, I’m spring cleaning. Was smiling until a load of dust fell on me from my chimney while clearning the hearth. Hah! Maybe that calls for a funny poem, as have recovered and am laughing. Counting down to our lovely meet-up, my dearest friend (about 1 month to go — yay!!!). xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


  6. Yes, they look like they’re growing old disgracefully πŸ™‚

    • Sounds like the best way to grow old, although being disgraceful requires energy. Presently recharging myself for something, but not sure what that something. Maybe a quietly semi-disgraceful something πŸ˜‰
