Click here to watch and listen to the gorgeous water lapping the shores at Walden Pond, the inspiration for this, my first, tanka. It’s a bit of a found poem, as well, since I borrowed most of the first three lines from Tuesday’s SOL post about our visit to Walden Pond.
At the water’s edge
Lapping at the sandy shore
Sunlight stars sparkling
Would Thoreau welcome you here
Beachgoers, sunbathers, all
