Tanka two

Tanka 

It is cold outside 
Yet almond trees bear flowers 
Sun and rapid rain 
Winter and spring dance tango 
A green leaved oak applauds 





Tanka 
A charming princeling 
Fight battles in a lost war 
Pleased by his dimness
The tabloids are triumphant
He has made war glamorous

    Hi Jan, the charmer, in Haiku 1. You know I'm a sucker for those almond trees. #2 War. It is not glamorous. Don't we all know by now. love, Kathy
