Lazy Poet’s Thursday Tanka

fieldsLate summer calling

with the lowest hum of heat,

from earth and from air.

Hay harvested, the soil waits

for a thunderstorm to break.






Lazy Poet’s Thursday Tanka for Tish

Deep colour spectrum

scribbled with arachnid silk.

Textured rays, fibres

terra pots disintegrate

and crumble back to grey dust.

Tish took and edited this fascinating photo, which she named ‘Through a Web Darkly’, and very kindly offered it as inspiration for our writing. I’d written this before I had a reply with permission to post! Isn’t it a good image? I love it, thanks Tish.
