Twinkling blooms

Pink Blooms

pink blooms huddle like,
blushes on a newborn’s cheeks,
twinkle bright cherries,
light the streets from afar, on,
otherwise bleak winter night.

Poetry Form :- Tanka (5/7/5/7/7 syllables)

  1. Beautiful! I love the colors of the flowers in your photo. Remember… no words ending in “ing.” Those ing endings only meet the syllable count and don’t add anything to the meaning. We’ll work more on those ing words… don’t worry. ❀
