Before Dawn

Before dawn's light breaks Defined stars twinkle bright Orion's belt glows Smaller more distant stars clear Millions seen, millions unseen Compelling are they Drawing inviting come out Cool crisp autumn air Wonderful starry night sky So thankful for the vision

    You have created a lovely duet of tanka. In the second one, 3rd line I think you meant "crisp". Please keep us informed about Jack's progress - thanks.
