after the bushfire

we replenish the earth

seed by seed ...

the returning perfume

of golden wattles

— Susan Burch GUSTS # 33 Contemporary Tanka: spring/summer 20

What a lovely tanka about healing and rebuilding after suffering such devastation, 'the returning perfume of golden wattles' is a beautiful sensory image. I can almost smell it. We hope you are inspired to bring healing/rebuilding into your poems.
