Magic Jewels

flames flicker and fade
facets of sun-sparked jewels
glittering sea foam

My response to Carpe Diem #1355 The Sea King and the Magic Jewels (Japanese fairytale)

Although I haven’t heard of the Japanese fairy tales we have read so far, I have spotted some similarities with more familiar fairy tales. I can’t say that about today’s tale, which is called ’The Sea King and the Magic Jewels’ – an unusual story I have never heard of and unlike any other.

    1. Thank you, Gillena. I will have to go back to read your tanka a little later – I have an on-line Writers’ Academy Masterclass in an hour or so, after which I will be back among the poets! xx.
