So twenty days in and I must admit the strain is showing - I’m currently trailing a poem or two behind. Now this is purely a self imposed restriction. There’s no requirement to actually post each day but I like that it encourages me. I make time for poetry and the poetry benefits.
The heat though has been horrendous. Inspiring this haiku:
even the Chilli bush
prays for rain
I also attempted another Tanka. Again beginning with a Haiku and then adding personal commentary.
for fading memories
catching my tears as I
try to remember his face
