Earth drinks the water.
New growth forms and opens its leaves
The leaves embrace skyfire.
Plants flower... wind scatters seeds.
Mother Earth is in balance.
by Robin Dildine-Gwin
Last year several waka writers started a waka by writing the first two lines and invited others to finish it off with three lines of their own. You can see two examples here.
Today, we offer these two lines as a starting point.
Through an open door,
morning: birdsong and cool air
To submit your waka or finish this one, please send it in an email to waka @ thereikidigest.com and be sure to use the word "waka" in the subject line.
