along the road
poppies start blooming again –
the scent of straw

I did not write a tanka in the spiritual sense.

sweet apples at top
no ladder to reach them
shake upper tree branches
a rain of apples descends
sweet scent of an apple pie

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
