Add a little tanka to your life

(While tanka praising nature seem to resemble “long haiku,” most tanka deal with human relationships or the author’s situation.)

Old shuttered houses
wear angled roofs and clapboard
In the yards weeds bloom
and pink haired thistles flourish
Shades of memory restored
