Under Maple Trees


                our innocence lost
                its ability to blush
                under Maple trees
                unripe fruits camouflaged
                by gold, brown, and red leaves

    Ruben; I don't know much about Tankas, or fancy poetry, but this is good. The first two lines say it all. Have a blessed day... Lucilla

    Oh shucker dudes! You sure put me to shame, Ruben! Here I was, leaning towards posting a write about butts, Nicki Minaj and cooking & eating chicken butts. I slink back to my shell now. I agree with what Craig said, you don't write often but when you do write and post, it's definitely worth the wait! I really enjoyed this tanka of yours, I think I can glean such an interesting, ripe story here....

    Innocence lost its ability to blush-Gives me the message of guilt .The unripe fruits in camouflage make me think of soldiers.I have a picture on my mind of war here,but maybe its all the latest news I am reading.Maybe this is just about love,innocence gone and autumn love.You always leave me pondering with that smart mind of yours.Please enlighten me.I do believe maple leaves were used for a reason or to symbolize a country?Or am I wrong?:Hope to see more of your writing Ruben.I missed it! : )

    wow, is this for Francine's colorful contest. It is among the best that I have read so far, Ruben. And even better than the imagery is its message!!

    Dear Reuben, Those fall colors provide wonderful settings for young people to profess their love. "Blushing" is such a beautiful way to describe it. Excellent write, my friend. Best wishes in the Tanka contest. Love always, Carolyn
