The lost heart

Another challenge (Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday promp) I’ve let myself be drawn into. I love John Bauer’s illustrations. This is little Princess Tuvstarr.



The child
by the dark pool
searches for her heart, caught
among the branches of dream trees—
lost gold.

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. Caught in dream trees– just perfect. I like Bauer’s illustrations too, although I don’t think I know this story. I’ll write my own response before I look it up.
