It is an intriguing moment, full of possibilities, 

I think. What windows have you left open, 

or realized were open, 

and what are the feelings you have about them,

 what could happen next? 

How do you leave the window open in your tanka?)

Friday, August 1 tanka prompt: a window left open. what window have your left open

 or seen that way, what could come in or out

(On our journey I photographed this mysterious, inviting, provocative sight, 

the open window. I wrote of for the prompt “while”- “what you saw while something important was happening”

.

as soon as we met he called
to report a window open
on the highest floor
and it was starting
to rain

.

It is an intriguing moment, full of possbilities, 

I think. What windows have you left open, 

or realized were open, 

and what are the feelings you have about them,

 what could happen next? 

How do you leave the window open in your tanka?)
