peeping out amongst the noise

wind still blowing strong

still a welcome sight to see

mother nature fails

wet spring weather cause problem

fragile plants are drowned

too much rain not enough sun

crops fail to produce income

as the sun goes down

daffodils laying to rest

still warm from the sun

picking time for cancer help

come friday they will be gone

Info about this tanka

In New Zealand the last weekend in Winter there is a fund raising day for cancer

Daffodils are sold everywhere

So that’s what those last two lines of the tanka are all about, mind you that will be at the end of August in New Zealand.

struggling through cold ground

bringing fragile beauty up

delicate colours

giving me a beaming smile

that will last the whole day through
