Tanka: Warm Path Through Winter


a warm path
weaves her way through winter
from eye to heart
soft glow of the low sun
blows a silent kiss

We are deeply humbled and honoured that this tanka was voted the winning tanka in Carpe Diem’s Tanka Kukai One ‘Winter Love’ in December 2016. A very big thank you to Kristjaan for hosting the Kukai and to all participating poets for their support.
