soft earth her jewelry box

It is amazing, isn't it Chris?  All of what
she gives to us each year....no matter the
season, there is always beauty around us,
all we have to do is look.

Chris~

She said, "I tried a Tanka of sorts."

And SUCCEED is what you did, lady~

Chris, this is gorgeous ... I am tickled in shades of 'autumn' to see this 'jewel'~

Hey, now ... don't go feeling any pressure or anything ... but, um, I'm thinking (and Lord knows that is sometimes a big mistake) that a Rictameter is next of your list of 'I trieds' ... right ?

Love you sweets~

This is truly very lovely. I've not tried a tanka,  but you have inspired me to try it. I am afraid I will not be able to paint as lovely a view, but try I will.
Thank you for the lovely image.

Your words speak for their wondorous presence, often went unnoticed.

Absolutely enchanting, dear Chris! I have no familiarity with tanka, but who knows one day I might try ...

You inspire!

Love and hugs.
