Trying on a Wedding Dress


I have been trying for ages to encapsulate in a tanka the experience of going shopping for a wedding dress with my daughter. I hope this does it justice. The wedding isn’t until May and I’m sure there will be plenty to write about then. Of course, I can’t include a picture!


Champagne froth of lace

Embroidered intricacy

And beads like teardrops

In which you swim before me

My only daughter a bride
