#Tanka 25 — 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.
