Tanka: Where Peace can Grow

tanka poem by Xenia Tran with an image of two whippets in winter jackets near part frozen wetlands under a clear blue sky
two whippets in winter jackets sniffing the frozen ground near wetlands

parallel lines
nature paints choices
between water and ice
reeds shuffle and wonder
how peace on earth can grow

  1. Beautiful images that complement a Tanka connecting with immediate nature and world politics. So much to think about Xenia. I had a look at the sneak preview, congratulations. A fascinating project.
