A new Carpe Diem challenge.
In a recent post the Carpe Diem site introduced a new-to-me poet, Tomas Tranströmer. We are given a Tranströmer haiku as an inspiration. The season word is ‘frigid’ which makes it definitely winter.
I’m not sure how close I’ve come to the model. but mine is winter too.
Willow trees lean over
the moonlit river, where ice
glitters like starlight.
What a beauty!
I like the image you create.. the elements are there.. and the willow tree works fine with me…
Thank you for your comment. I live in an area where oaks are rare but willows are everywhere and make the landscape.
I felt a chill reading in. Very well written.
Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I’ve had a heavy week. Thank you so much for your comment.
