waterfall

Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #16 Teika's Sixth Tanka Writing Technique "visual description" (prompt: waterfall)


amid the roar
the rusty barge sits in silence
reflecting
as ancient waters caress
the crest of the falls

    1. There is a grounded barge that sits upstream from the falls. If you look closely you can see it in the background. http://www.niagarafrontier.com/scow.html is a site that tells the story. Glad you enjoyed the tanka. janice xx
