efflorescence spell

flowers rejoice gift of spring

never wailing fall

preaching to live in moment

surging ahead laugh and sing

This post is in response to Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #28.  The challenge is to use words “Laugh” and “Cry” or their synonyms in a haiku, tanka or haibun. I have written a Tanka using  “laugh” and “wail”. The poem is also a submission towards sixth day of NaPoWriMo and in line with our monthly theme “Optimism”.
