Tanka Poets on Site (August 16 prompt)

     Kathy Uyen Nguyen and I ended up writing a tanka sequence!

where petals unfurl
into subtle shades
like the clouds in the sky
I am a bird song waiting
to be heard

the bird songs
I remember from yesteryear . . .
are they not
the same hues
as your wild, wild heart?


I cannot wait
to see the other side
of the mountain
these new names
of scented wings


mountain echoes
from the edges
of our lips
my heart becomes lost
in those painted skies
prompt: where I find myself
