It's Tanka Tuesday and Colleen Chesebro invites us to reflect on our seasonal weather through a poem. Yesterday, dark clouds threatened the sky and as they inched forward, they left an icy trail. It is this chilly experience that prompts my poem.
The tanka below (syllables of 5-7-5-7-7) uses the seasonal words of ice, dark clouds, and thunder to capture the volatility of our wintery weather. I hope you enjoy it.
