I really enjoyed this beautiful and peaceful moment❣️∼ Thank You, Desmond — Have a good week!

 it is indeed a very beautiful and peaceful poem Rosmarie and so glad that you enjoyed and found it so.. it is an example of an ancient type of poetry that is still in use today..  called Waka or more recently Tanka the poems have a set structure and speak of the goodness in life.. always they seem to me to be very positive.

I have several Haiku books with beautiful illustrations, but I never read a Tanka before. 

hi Rosmarie it could be worth a visit to Wikipedia and look for WAKA poetry.. there are some good samples.

loved this desmond quite relaxing and beautiful
