Sky’s blue falls softly

meeting a far deeper hue

on a craggy crest

where my cold blue heart must pass

if she should one day beckon.

    Surprised your color for the tanka wasn't red (I jest). There was a nice dreamy quality to this poem... the Japanese poetry forms thrive off of subtlety and you seem to get that as well... fantastic job!
