old am I
my dreams let me fly
know no bounds.

For Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge I have chosen to do a short haiku. 3/5/3.

    She’s gorgeous and yes, they do keep dreaming! Our gal is turning 13 and has the same dreams.

    Dreams can take us anywhere when our body can’t keep up. Beaufiful poem.

    What a beauty! I would say this is a senryu, Willow. You’re talking about emotions in this one, even though there is a dog in the photo. We write senryu about human nature, and haiku is written about nature. That’s the only way I can keep them apart. LOL! 😀
