Howlin' Wolf

inhales in shadows
takes inspiration from gloom
moonlight penetrates
creates an old fashion song
simply called singing the blues

    Congratulations on winning an Honorable Mention in my contest, TANKA - THE PIVOT, Harry. The headnote is well employed (please see my blog TANKA NOTES for elaboration). Yes, tanka is like "singing the blues". The longing oozes out of this well written tanka. Love, Su

    I love it Harry, October is a good time for the blues, you'll probably hear me some night when the moon is bright and full. I enjoyed the read~ Caryl

    Some folks think black folks invented the blues.when really it was a mixture between women and jim crow.

    Yesss... that lonesome old sound. We too have near us on the escarpment singing the blues each night! Love and hugs, Jack

    We have coyotes up on the escarpment breathing the gloom and boy, do they sing the blues. Great way to portray these critters and I will think of your verse when I hear them again. Love Lizzie
