Tankas to Nature~A Collaboration

Bunch of yellow daffodils.

It is warm outside

Birds take off their feathered coats

Seeds are bursting now

Shoots thrust through the melting ground

Welcome Spring with green carpets


Daffodils trumpet

Yellow heads tip back to sing

Expose their nectar

The Oriole is happy

Sings his favorite morning song


The chorus of Wrens

Awakens me each morning

As they leave their nests

Returning with wriggling worms

They’ve got hungry mouths to feed


Dawn spreads cold fingers

Midday shelters fields with warmth

Farmer wipes his brow

The wheat dances in the breeze

It entertains the loud Crows


This series of tankas comes from a collaboration with a wonderful writer, now published author named Melinda. She shares her novels filled with magic, drama and deep characters at, http://melindakucsera.com/  Please go and read her scheduled excerpts from the many projects  she has in the making. I often feel like I’m getting a special treat by seeing them before the rest of the world. Truly a talented writer and it was such a privilege to work with her. Thank you, Melinda.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
