Winter Highs

Flakes rest on eyelids
Deep exhale of ivory
Footprints give wonder

Snowfalls upon naked trees 
February calms my soul

Lovely tanka, Anthony.

It carries well throughout the top and bottom poems with a good pivot line to bridge.

Lady Nyo. A very satisfying tanka.

I love the feel/look of snow kissed trees. Woke up to them this morning and smiled. Your tanka captures the feel just as beautifully as the scene outside my window

nicely played...i am hoping though that february continues to bring me the warmth it has the last couple days...the naked trees is a good chilling hook...
