Colourful tanka


two colours
a line of separation
cuts the sun
before both sea and sky
blend a common darkness

Gorgeous photo and tanka! Your words capture one of my very favorite things--watching the sun set over the sea.

The picture of a perfect truth. Nothing like the tranquility of this pic that reminds me of the beauty of nature.

Wow. 'cuts the sun' is a very strong image. Its nice that you've captured colours in the process of changing.

A last slice of color before the darkness. Nicely worded tanka. the pic is a striking complement to your word image.
