Carpe Diem Special #217 Dolores’ 1st paintbrush flowers (tanka)

Okay, so I’ll admit it’s kind of awkward to write a poem in response to your own poem. I was glad Chèvrefeuille, our host included the music inspiration that the first poem was written from.   I think, I like this tanka better.  Hope that you find the poems for this month’s specials inspirational.


echo of the loon
across the lake
sadness reflected
twilight kisses the edge
of summer’s last sunset
