Summer days

summer days
spent cross-legged 
in clover …
my life-long search
for the lucky fourth leaf

  1. I love this one, having spent many hours searching for four-leaf clovers myself! There are worse ways to spend a summer day . . .

  2. This tanka really resonated with me and brought back a lot of memories of sitting in clover on lazy summer days.

  3. Oh I remember the days..."lifelong" really adds another dimension to this!

    2. I never found one. Sitting cross-legged now would just about kill me.
