This week for Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge Poet’s Choice I have created another Tanka Prose to get a bit of practice in… a tribute to my time in Wales living and working in the Snowdonia National park.
Tanka Prose – Above the World
Rare gift of late summer sunshine. Younger legs than today, eager to take even the steepest paths. Breathlessly grateful for viewpoints on the climb. Ultimate prize, tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches high above the world. Late summer grass offers resting place before the reluctant descent before dark.
Memories of youth
when mind and body aligned
eager for the climb
to reach the top of the world
above life’s imperfections.
