Clear pristine water
glimmering, shimmering glow
shaded rock jewels , lie,
few walk amongst the cool flow
ripples reflect in moonlight

    Loved the tanka. Especially the second line. Wish you the best for the contest.

    Oh, great moonlight work..Like the line "few walk amongst the cool flow"...Those rocks are slippery aren't they..This will glimmer and shimmer in the winner's list..I am glad that there is another person out there who sees things in the clouds..Sara

    '...glimmering,shimmering,' neat! I love the 'glow/flow' rhyme, and the pleasing assonance of jew(el)' Well done, Phyl!! :)
