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.

  1. Excellent, excellent, Tanka, Merril. The last line makes the poem sing. I pray for peace during this period in our history. I only hope people will see that violence solves nothing. ❤

  3. 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.
