Tanka Tuesday: Withheld breath

A tanka for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday. The theme words are Calm & Wild.


Night cloud flies, storm-winged,

branches thrash in the wild wind,

waiting for the rain.

Every listening thing is hushed,

I hold my breath as stars fall.

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.
