Dec 20, 2013 prompt: inner spring, inner bird

(painting by Rekha K Rana)

Today as I was deciding on the painting Rekha

and drawn to this one 

Arap Kurt posted this beautiful tanka, so in tune with the painting!  

lock will not open

 sparrow mouth

 frozen smile 

Wait for me says spring

 this life is enough?

=======================

How does your inner bird sing to you?

What kind of bird is it? How can it,

does it bring spring to you?

Does it sing about patience? Or a nesting song?

Or a question for you to answer?

Or a soothing lullabye?

A wake up song?

How does it sing in your tanka?

blueberry bushes are budded 
and protected by the snow
An open winter will cause 
a poor crop in the summer 
as they need snow cover.
