A walk at any time can be refreshing. Tonight, I took a short stroll away from the house and as I walked through the yard, I looked up at the crescent moon. This poem was born and later became this tanka.
By the way, go outside and check out tonight’s inverted moon. It’s rather rare to see it like that.
Our door shrinks behind.
Green fields of tiny leaflets
Catching every step.
Chilled air suckles goose bump flesh,
With God’s thumbnail in the sky.
