Tanka romantica!

The moonlight touches

Your hair and moves on – seeking –

But not finding such

Softness – such fragrance – in all

The twilight scented garden.


This is a tanka, a very ancient Japanese form, written for Kanzensakura over at dverse.  It’s a short, romantic form, with a syllable pattern 5-7-5-7-7
