Forever Home: A Tanka Sequence with Margaret Dornaus #7

the angular roof
beneath marshmallow clouds . . .
an old Chocolat factory
          enveloped, even now
          in the sweet breath of summer 

                    Berne, Switzerland, 1998 (click on image to enlarge)

  1. One of my favorites from the sequence, Kirsten! I love that line: "the sweet breath of summer" juxtaposed with "marshmallow clouds."
