sheep warming in the dull sun
late lush summer grass
wishing for the days gone by
with thoughts of birds in chorus

    • Thanks for commenting, this tanka means a lot to me being a farmers wife, all my life farming with animals, last November 2016 we retired and came to town, married fifty-eight years at Christmas.
      I do miss farming and most of all the early morning singing of the Bellbird in the forests around the farm.
      That’s what the last two lines are about.
      Have a nice day.

      • How I wish to visit your place ! One of the most beautiful place on earth with virgin landscape and the seas … a friend of mine lives there . He is a doctor . Lives in Auckland . He says that the Lord of the ring scenes are mostly shot there . Wow.
        I know your feeling ….. you must be missing your farm with the smell of the verdure and all .
        as ever ,
