Tanka for Sunday Scribblings

Sunday Scribblings offers Beauty as today's prompt word.

a clean mantle falls
through the dark on hills and town
the virgin white snow
reflecting first morning light
autumn's rain-soaked gray turns bright

Note: Congratulations to Laini, Jim and Lips Touch: Three Times, on their nomination for 2009 National Book Award.

Very evocative. Almost makes me wish for snow to clear away the debris of autumn. Thanks for visiting me too! Jae

I love how you pair your word creations with your graphic creations. It always adds to the effect. This poem however, would stand beautifully on it's own.
