Haiku challenge: Twist & Shout

For Ronovan’s weekly challenge. This was a hard one. I wrote a haiku and a tanka and just about managed to get the words in.

River twists between

yellow banks washed by spring tides—

gulls scream in the wind.



Petals twist and spin

caught in the hand of the breeze

their perfume scattered.

Spring tears winter’s rags—I rail

against its ferocity.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
