Butterfly Heat ~ For NaPoWriMo Day 11

butterfly heat

the first day of spring

each year

beneath a picnic basket

I spread a blanket for you

My response to the National Poetry Writing Month Day 11 prompt “write a tanka” on NaPoWriMo—April 2013. 

I’ve used the current thinking on haiku for the first three lines in the above tanka. I used the traditional syllable count on a second tanka of 5-7-5-7-7:


the sound of gray dawn

these first birds in the window

emerge from shadow

I wake in my studio

to the color of spring light


Be fun—Write Haiku or other Poetry every day in April – Aloha
