Sanaa, mistress of A Dash of Sunny, said “Attitudes are contagious”. Then she asked, “Is yours worth catching?” I thought it was an excellent question, so I answered with tanka.
the song in my bones
springs winter into summer.
my flesh blooms wild mirth
that will spread from hands to lips,
to kiss the sun and melt snow
a wee (scandalous) note…
– Yes, I’m in total lust with tanka… I’m sure it’s chronic. Also, I’m nearly certain that my sense of modesty died screaming a very long time ago. And thank goodness for that!
