This my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper Tuesday Tanka.

The words we have to use snynomymosly are Grow and Honour .

With Geoff at Tangental being full of weddings old and new, Colleen’s prompt put me in mind of my wedding day. I hope this is what my Dad felt as he gave me away.

Rules and Pingback Here.

A FOB Tanka.

Heart swelling with pride

All grown up and amazing

A beautiful bride

Proud to walk her down ailse

She’s blossomed look at her smile.


A FOB Senryu

As a child blossoms

To watch was your privilege

Your heart fit to burst.

    OK, Willow… what’s “FOB?” I would say your last poem is a Senryu because it is more about a personal event. I always think of Haiku as related to nature or change. I think you captured those precious moments you shared with your father very well, indeed. Gorgeous pictures! ❤
