It's Tanka Tuesday, and Colleen Chesebro invites us to share poetry related to the season. My contribution is a journey chronicled through three tankas (5-7-5-7-7).
I live about an hour from Sedona, a town in Arizona. It's a place I dearly love. Hubby and I visited recently and what we discovered prompts my poems today. Snow lightly covered the area and all was quiet. The typically crowded streets and sidewalks were surprisingly vacant of tourists. We were free to roam.
I've tried to capture the grandeur of the red rocks and the solemnity that they evoke to share today. Winter draws me into my heart more than other seasons. Perhaps the same is true for you. Enjoy . . .
