Envious Moon

the mid-winter moon
pressed its face to the window
breathed frost on the glass
envious of warm bodies
their limbs and hearts intertwined

Kim M. Russell, 2016

My response to Carpe Diem #1099 Symphony No. 3 by Louise Farrenc

Today Chèvrefeuille has inspired us with music of another little known female musician, Louise Farrenc, a French composer, virtuosa pianist and teacher. He has chosen her Symphony No. 3, which inspired him to create the following tanka:

early morning
the first sun beams cherish my body
she awakens too
my sunshine, my cooling summer rain,
she the one I will love forever
