Stormy Weather–Tanka

Charcoal clouds gather

together they roil, blow

with stormy fervor

the winds of change, so ruthless

I fear, yet watch for rainbows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A tanka for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday, using synonyms for passion and congregate.

This seems appropriate for today. It’s the one-year anniversary of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, and we are expecting thunderstorms here in New Jersey.

  2. Roiling and blowing storm clouds do suit the tense air and atmosphere of today’s society. Mom would say, we are “on pins and needles!” I like your keeping us aware of the anniversary of the Charleston rally, Merril.
