Poetry by Sarah, Tanka

Such sprawling beauty!
Fields brushed purple, lilac,
baby pink and white.
Surviving; thriving; and wild.
Limitless reach. Earth ensnared.

  1. Oh, that image brings back pleasant memories of life on the farm, our hills would be covered with that beauty even though it was annoying as sheep never would eat the grass around those roots as they are poison to animals.
    Thanks for the memories.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. I was shocked to find out they are a weed and poisonous when I visited NZ. I tried to convey that in the last line of the Tanka that it’s a trap for the earth…rendering the soil etc useless.

      Thanks for your comment and organising the challenge. Have a great weekend 😊
