How gorgeous is that photo! This week I decided to write a followed by a tanka. A chōka is a long poem of storytelling from the Japanese culture. There are different lengths of the poem. I chose to go with a nine-line
soft powder litters the ground
winter's kiss is brisk
sky and snow become mirrors
it's a winter wonderland
Most of you know I'm a Florida girl now, but as a child, my dad was stationed in my places that snowed (Germany, Korea, Mississippi, and Virginia), so I've had my fair share of winter moments. It's beautiful to look at, but I don't miss it. Not one bit. ;-)
