SAD

Grey sky confusion -
a bruised brooding December.
Sharp as spruce and myrrh
tears fall, strike bauble light, salve
this cold Christmas contusion.




for 'Not So Happy Holidays' contest

    I wrote my first Tanka yesterday, for a contest that subsequently filled before I could submit it :( After reading yours I deleted mine as yours is that good.
