Purple Clematis Tanka

Purple Clematis Tanka and watercolor artwork by Wendy L. Macdonald for thesketchypoet.wordpress.com

purple clematis
climbing over the arbor
a resolution
to reach as high as I can
with my creative passions

I’ve begun writing tanka poetry on my Facebook page and decided to try one here too.

Although I’ve enjoyed writing haiku, I love the two extra lines the tanka allows.

This watercolor pencil painting was inspired by a photograph I took in my garden.

Are you aspiring to reach higher with your artwork?

Blessings for 2018 ~ Wendy

Oxalis grow abundantly in my garden. My favorites are the large pink ones.

(The language of flowers/pansy haiga.)

In the Victorian days people didn’t usually speak openly about their romantic interest in another person.

Sometimes they relied on the language of flowers.
