This week for Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge there’s an awesome photo to use as inspiration, which you can see above. Image Credit: Commons: Wikipedia.ogr
Hibiscus flowers bring back memories of tropical sunshine. Nowadays, I enjoy catching a glimpse of them at the Botanical Gardens in their glasshouses, this is one I photographed a while ago…
My Tanka poem in response to this:
Fragility of your flame
Memories not lost
Recalled by rain drops falling
Caressing tender petals.
Wishing you a very happy holiday season.
A Merry Christmas to you all. xxx

Nice response to the image prompt! Merry Christmas to you, too!
Great pick of flower, Marje. Hibiscus grow here in the desert (with water, of course). I’m sure it’s a low humidity variety they use for planting. They do love the hot sun. Can you believe it’s almost the end of the year?? Happy Solstice. May the sun shine upon you and your family. <3
