Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor 25th Teika’s 9th Tanka Writing Technique “Exquisite Detail” (prompt: charcoal)


autumn wind blows
charcoal smudges your cheek
as hair is pushed back
a blush on your cheek
as you continue drawing


sweeping the hearth
ashes into a pail
early morning
bitter cold pierces my coat
on the way to the woodpile
