We’re finally in the spring season now, which means warmer weather will hopefully be on the way. I can say for sure that it’s already brought plenty of rain, though, at least where I live! In fact, it rained so much earlier this week that the basement drain couldn’t keep up with the continuous influx of water, and unfortunately, this led to the basement flooding. The kitties were really alarmed by everything going on, and being the curious cats they are, had to come investigate. They kept going in and out of the basement, trying to figure out what was happening and what the heck we were doing.
The dark flower, mysterious And demonic in its pristine beauty A curse of immortality, Passed down through the ages
Crimson Gate (Version 1 and 2)
For today, I have two slightly different versions of the same poem! The first version is a haiku, while the second is a tanka poem. As such, they are of differing length, and phrases/words have been added and rearranged in each poem. However, I wrote both based on the same theme and ideas.
