Tanka--By Elizabeth Howard--United States

feeling my age
until I look up
puffy white clouds, blue sky--
child-like, I trace a giant . . .
and a fire-breathing dragon

Elizabeth Howard lives in Crossville, Tennessee. She writes poetry and fiction. Her poems have appeared in Comstock Review, Big Muddy, Appalachian Heritage, Cold Mountain Review, Poem, Still, Mobius, Now & Then, Slant, and other journals.

  2. Elizabeth,
    So cute and clever. It is fun to imagine what the clouds look like.
    Your friend,

  3. A delightful Tanka, Elizabeth! We might get old in years, but the child in us never ages! Regards // paul
