    Nice tanka (love the picture too), but I can only imagine having a frost in September. September is one of our warmest months in the deep south.

    • Thanks, Margaret. I remember back when we moved to Nashville, we had already had our first frost up here (mid-September), but when we got to Tennessee the daytime temps were still in the ’90s!

    Margaret, September in New Hampshire can mean anything from frost to hurricanes to tropical heat! Nice taiga, Matt!

  3. I love this form and you did a wonderful job here, Matt! Love it!

  4. Wow! I love the tanka form, and you did a fantastic job with this one. I especially love “rainbow/at my fingertips” – lovely image.

  5. How I would love to go through summer with a rainbow at my fingertips… alas, it’s the a.c. control I’ve got at my fingertips. Beautiful Tanka, Matt!

  6. Great tanka, Matt! I hope “the first frost that closes the shade” arrives a lot later than September. = )

  7. I am kind of a “rainbow killer”…that sounds harsh, doesn’t it? I mean, I just don’t have a green thumb! And yes, the first frost can come pretty early here in Maine, too! Not looking forward to it at all.
    Loved “rainbow at my fingertips” though!

  8. A lovely poem/photo pair for a summer day–thank you, Matt!

  9. My first visit Matt.
    The photo is poetry itself.
    It’s a joy to see the live rainbow.

    And, thanka for the tanka.
    Makes me want to try one.
