Winter Afternoon

January 14, 2019

Winter afternoon
peace and quiet so serene
clear and cold and blue
– but I’m never blue with you
in our home beside the sea.


The Japanese tanka is a 31-syllable poem.
Tanka translates as ‘short song’ and is known for its 5-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.

  1. Great picture, Jennifer. Yes the bright blue sky and sea are extra nice when you can share them with someone – helps to melt away the cold and ice. Super cold here today – 6 degrees this morning. We had a snowstorm yesterday and none of the roads were treated because it was above freezing, until it wasn’t…always fun 😐 Stay warm!
