I dream in colour,
But now everything is dark,
Where has the light gone?
Oh, cruel leafy canopy?
No green meadow, just blue thoughts.
A spectre haunts me,
Through the trees he drifts slowly,
I hear no weeping,
Just a tall, grey wall of sighs,
Twigs snap, and nothing changes.

Oh dear, that was sad and depressing! …. Why am I always drawn to writing such misery? Don’t answer that!
Hope you like my Tanka’s (even if they’re sad,) and the contrasting photos I took of the trees.
