Pale yellow blooms

pale yellow blooms
on the evening primrose ...
I learned
not to open myself 
in morning's full light

  4. Wow! Nature or nurture ... you've summed up the whole conundrum beautifully (and oh so, succinctly) in this awesome little tanka, Janet.

  5. These days, soft candlelight suits me better than that morning light. Lovely tanka and photo.
