portents wht s

The clouds are cold, still
heavy with winter.  Layers
reveal blue borders.

Earth holds its breath, forecasting.
Throw spring, uncautioned, to wind.

Colleen’s weekly tanka prompt words were clouds and spring, accompanied by the photo, above.  I also used most of the Secret Keeper’s prompt words from this week.

    The stitching adds incredible depth to your lovely color palette. I’m feeling the teensiest promise of spring in that pretty olive green. Thanks for the beautiful art while we all wait for spring.

    How beautiful and full of peace. We are all waiting for spring. It is here in the Colorado mountains! 77 degrees today. Not bad for living at 6,000 ft. + elevation. 😀

    The way you stitch a vision and make it stay; it’s pure magic. Happy first day of Spring! Anything wintry that happens after this day I stubbornly discount as an illusion. 😉
