Suzuran (Lilly of the Valley), is again here for your inspiration.
Chèvrefeuille wrote this is the first tanka I ever wrote. I love to share that tanka here again here:
Lilies of the valley
their sweet perfume makes me drowsy
hot summer night
between silken sheets her warmth
I love to challenge you to create a tanka inspired on Suzuran (Lilly of the Valley), of course, you can use my tanka for your inspiration also say’s Kristjan.
I learned something new today Suzuran is Japanese for Lily of the Valley, thanks, to Kristjaan – now my Tanka Poem
a symbol of spring
the lily of the valley
the national flower of Finland
true sweetness and purity
showers my garden with pure love
