shower me with
your talk of better days -
slow sun rising

shower me with
your talk of better days -
slow sun rising
a bus turns wide at the curb
egrets return from their roost

too old for new love
the moon rises each night
as I remember
the backseats of strange cars
its helpful light afterwards

departing geese
King Winter is on his way
snow and frost will come
cherry blossoms bloom again
the sound of geese returning

At first, I read "better days" as the good old days (showing my age, no doubt), but the last line turns my thoughts to what is to come. A beautifully constructed and meaningful ku, dear Gillena.

Wow what a nice post. I love how you show us the way to your tanka, prolonging your haiku as if it was the starting verse of a Tan Renga. Well done ...
