Sea Roving Mist

rolling off shore
misty banks of white tendrils
soggy white fingers
lure with promise of treasure
disguised as an autumn day

My response to Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #2 Mist

I’m just catching up with the second day of Ten Tanka Writing Techniques by Teika, in which Chèvrefeuille has challenged us to create a tanka inspired by ‘mist’ using the first tanka writing technique, ’Mystery and Depth. He also shared a tanka of his own as an example of this technique:

stories told
white witches dancing on the heath
just tendrils of mist
scaring little children
“the boogie-man comes!”
