July Stones 1

the air heavy
with incoming rain
i cradle the nectarine
with both hands
to inhale its scent

 

(Essentially, I’m unofficially taking part in the July session of the small stones challenge. I saw unofficial because I haven’t registered my blog since I post other things here. Nevertheless, stay tuned, and think about joining the river.)

    Great tanka, Aubrie! I can feel the pending rain, and almost smell the nectarine. Nice to see you on the river!

  2. Nice one, Aubrie! Now I want a nectarine 😉 but will have to wait til summer…
    (And you can still add your blog to the river of stones blog roll, you just need to let Fiona know that you’re writing small stones and other goodies on your blog.)
