summer ~ a tendril

summer drums raindrops
sprinkling staccato sunshine
winds whistle awhile

rice fields sway
summer drums raindrops
sprinkling staccato sunshine
winds whistle awhile
wet earth perfumes nature’s song
making creatures dance
barefooted

Colleen Cheesebro’s Tanka Tuesdays – specific poetry form – Colleen asks us to start with a known form of syllabic poetry and create a new form. I started with a haiku. The new form that evolved from there has a 3/5/7/5/7/5/3 syllable count and can be read from top to bottom and from bottom to top. And I’m calling it a tendril (makihige)
