For today, a tanka. I had been working on another poem that sort of went bust--it just didn't make sense. Sometimes those things happen. Rather than pursue it further, I used the thorns that were supposed to be meaningful in the first poem (and weren't), and put them into this tanka. If nothing else, it's very green!
