Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Weekly Challenge – Poet’s Choice – #TankaProse – The Hunter’s Moon by Sally Cronin

This week on Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge it is Poet’s Choice I have created a Tanka Prose…

Tanka Prose – Hunter’s Moon

The change in season has mind and body confused. One craves the sunlight slipping away. The other desires warming stews and comforting puddings. The birds forage in daylight storing fat for the long journey to the southlands. We must remain to make the most of the encroaching darkness.

Moon of many names
urges the birds to migrate
following the path
genetically embedded
southward to long sunlit days.

  1. Excellent tanka prose, Sally. I like that you talked about how the change in the seasons is affected by the moon. The birds in Michigan are trying to figure out what to do. We’re unseasonably warm and the birds haven’t started their migration yet. ❤
