Moonlight Tanaga

For the dverse prompt, a tanaga.


Moon, not full, rides high tonight,

Casting tangled shadowlight,

Hides the stalking vixen slight,

Silver-feathers barn owl’s flight.

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.

    1. Thanks Jo. It’s strange but I was thinking of that earlier in the evening plodding about trying to get the daft cat to come in before other things come prowling. I kept walking into tree branches waiting to be chopped into firewood because the moonlight was throwing such strange shadows.

  1. Great tanaga! Had never heard of this form but really like it! 🙂 So much happening in these few words….the cavorting in moonlight 🙂
