Moon murmurs an air,
glimmering in the gloaming,
shining through the shade
inside, we sit together,
wine, cats, the glow of a lamp
For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. I think writing a tanka is difficult, but one about the moon seems appropriate, since there will be a full moon on Friday night.
Love the last line, Merril. Enjoy your Sunday!
Thanks so much, Jill! I will. 🙂 You enjoy yours, too.
I love your tanka, and love the moon in all its phases
Thank you, Beth! I do, too (even though I am such a morning person). 🙂
Beautifully written, Merril!
Thank you very much!
A great finale for this piece.
Thank you so much!
The ending made me smile. 🙂
Thank you very much, Frank!
Well, I think you did a marvelous job, Merril. That last line put right in the moment with you! ❤
Thank you very much, Colleen! 🙂
“wine, cats, the glow of a lamp” You describe my favorite way to spend an evening with my husband 😉
It was definitely glimmering through the hazy clouds last night. (K)
Thank you, Derrick.
