Waka Challenge Day 9

Our goal is to post at least one waka a day from April 9 through May 9 in our second annual Waka Fest. Today's featured writer is Beth Lowell:

artillery fire
in a suburban landscape
guerillas descend
waging war against grass
on a postage stamp lawn

Those weepy pink clouds
Cherry Blossoms in the rain
their petals twirling
while feverish, I linger
wilting behind these old walls

with only one pair of shoes
the artist
turns down that "real job" offer
and spends his days in beauty

By Beth Lowell

We hope you'll contribute a waka or two to our celebration. You can add it as a comment to this post on our web site, or email it to editor @
