these tiny waterfalls
born on takeoff
the wild geese depart
Linked to Carpe Diem Tanka Shrine #2: Departing Geese. This is the newest member of the Carpe Diem family! Our task was to write a tanka inspired by the photo and this inspirational tanka from our host Chèvrefeuille:
King Winter is on his way
snow and frost will come
cherry blossoms bloom again
the sound of geese returning back
There is also a wonderful song by Nick Cave – which comes to mind when seeing this photo.
But, I’ve used it recently. A beautiful song though.
