Tanka 1

cold and snow arrives
young praying mantes last bow
staring at the trees
content to see the egg sacs
holding their spring progeny

I especially love that second line Warren so descriptive! Winter is on its way, lets hope spring arrives when it should as the unseasonably warm weather here has wreaked havoc with nature and have spring flowers in my garden already. Last Christmas Day we had one daffodil in flower it was most worrying:-( hugs Jan xx

Hi Jan, always good to her from you. Thanks so much for your positive comments. Yes, I wish all of the seasons would return to normal too, but fear this won' be the case due to global warming. We can hope. Best wishes ~Warren~
