Defending Mines

sun reflects off grass
     the blades shining silver
         my heart constricts
              you are away, defending mines
the front lawn needs mowing

Referring to today's blog: The Battle for Kumba Hill

    Yes, I had posted it earlier on under the working title of "Grass"....It is one of the few tanka which I have written which expresses a "diary clip", hence me posting it here in conjunction with my blog. :-) Love & Peace, my friend. X
