Castle

castle
after castle
on the banks
of this river … 
still a world of kings

GUSTS, Autumn 2015

Castle (on hill) where Richard the Lionheart
was held captive,  Durnstein, Austria

  1. Great photo to complement your tanka! I like the castle-like shape of the poem, and the layered last line.

    1. thanks, jenny. i'd never tried centering this poem before; looks kind of like a Christmas tree to me.

  2. A Christmas tree - or, perhaps, a turret. Actually I thought you were mimicking the castle turret in the picture. Enjoyed the photo, as well. A very cool post, Janet.
