summer

Carpe Diem Special #217 Dolores' 1st paintbrush flowers (tanka)

paintbrush flowers
dancing on the hillside
wind blows over reeds
ancient chants resurrected
sights and sounds of summer

The challenge for today's CD Special is to create a tanka (5 lines: respectively 5-7-5-7-7 syllables) inspired on this beauty by Dolores. Have fun!

faraway sounds
bring memories of childhood
laughing children
seeking for chestnuts
between colorful leaves

sun ripened corn fields
waiting the harvester claw
waving crinkled leaves
sun sails south to cold lands
warm days pulled by her rays

    As the corn ripens
    contemplation of harvest
    impending autumn
    reflecting the summer passed
    preparing for the winter.

    1. Most of the cornfields here are already harvested. We had a few 'cool' days, ie mid to high 80's. Now we are back in the mid to high 90's. Felt like fall for a couple of days.

    1. There are all the images in my mind from my childhood on the farm. That is what a harvester looked like to me as a small child.
