Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 228, #Poet’sChoice @ColleenChesebro

A Slice of Sky Pie - Shadorma 

Blue and white 
A slice of sky pie
Massive tree
A redwood
 Leafy lollipop heaven
Steep climb to the top!

My poem is inspired by a recent trip to the botanical gardens in Cambridge. I noticed this magnificent tree and the wonderful slice of blue and white sky.

To join in Colleen’s poetry challenge:


Here are some other magnificent champion trees that I saw on my walk. Enjoy!

And a bee hotel.

I intended to go for another walk today but it’s pouring with rain so I’m writing this blog post.

I managed to go for a walk in the rain later!

Check out this wonderful review post from Balroop Singh for Colleen Chesebro’s Wordcraft Prose and Poetry and my poetry and prose book – Mr. Sagittarius.

Bye for now,

  1. I feel a piece of that gently warmed sky, sun shaded by the redwood. It seems so strange to see a redwood in the East. We tend to think California owns them all. 🙂

      1. Very wonderful. Enjoy the summer. That’s the them of my Writer’s Quotes Wednesday, if you feel like participating, Marje. 🙂

      2. Ah, I’m snowed under with edits at the moment. I’m working on two books, Marsha. But if I get time I might join in. All the best for the summer. Marje x

  2. What a beautiful moment captured in your poem, Marje. Loved all your pictures too.
