Upon equinox

Tanka: 3/20 forsythia/ Equinox I


Upon equinox
This magical spring anew
Memories abound
Fresh air morning dew mournings
Moons & beginnings sing songs

For Frank J. Tassone’s Hakai Challenge


Authour’s notes: poem 17/30 for a month of poetry 2021.

The haikai I chose to write here is a spring equinox themed tanka. The tanka poem has a 5 – 7 – 5 – 7 – 7 syllabic structure.
