My Tanka poem for the picture. 5/7/5/7/7

THE FAIRY

The forest breathless

A protective lion near

By the serene lake

Witnessed only by two birds

Nature gave birth to magic.

    1. Thanks Jacqui. That’s my favorite line. I had to pull one when I realized there was too many. That had to stay.

  1. What beautiful feelings you portrait, Denise. The strength of a lion, the serenity of the lake, the gentleness of the birds to bring forth the magic. Fabulously done. Good to hear you’re coming out ahead with NaNo!

    1. Thank you Miriam. It was such a beautiful picture to work from. Fingers crossed I make it all the way with Nano.

      1. I appreciate Diana’s pick of the image. She picked great images when she hosted the Speculative Fiction in 2019.

        With the rate you’re going, you have no problem finishing NaNo, Denise!

    1. I’m getting there it will be close with Thanksgiving in the middle of it. I’m am enjoying working with a ghost and different time lines, although the thought of an envildwel did pass by…not this time! Thank you Sandra. Lots of hugs.
