    across the blue bridge
    the lovers fly into doves
    or stars in my peas

    ~~A lot of memories in this post of yours
    Also, thanks for the help…. I finally got WordPress to post the photo. Many thanks indeed.

      Mostly definitely. For the both of us, it sounds like.

      And you’re welcome!

        Oh, How I loved that old willow-ware china when I was a child. All the stories I could imagine while I was eating …. you can’t get better than that, except ….when your daughter cooks for you…. now that’s about as good as it gets.

          Merrill, that reminds me of whenever I was at my grandmother’s. She had a couple of the cork villages. I could stare into them for hours, as though the little cranes would come to life. I collect them now… picking one up whenever I find an older one (they’re much better crafted) for a good price.

    Snowbirdpress has expressed exactly what I thought when I read your tanka. I’ve nothing to add, except: lovely!

    never have
    two blue birds
    and willow leaves
    made such a merry
