Each sunrise speaks softly
Clouds seem to promise respite
Yet they perish thirsty
Sans water, sans loving friends
Haunted by the cleft curse queen.

Inspired by the image for the Tanka Tuesday Photo Challenge by Colleen M. Chesebro. Thank you.

  1. You do have a lovely way of writing. I thought this poem was intriguing and I was drawn into reading. I liked how it started of so positive and it felt wonderful then changed and haunted and darkness took over. Very creative and the photo has created a great scene. Thank you for sharing
