Decemeber Haiku Share: The Week That Was #2

The second week of Cara Holman's December Haiku Share has finished and it's still going strong. Below are the links to the last seven days of posts, and the haiku and tanka I've shared along the way. Yes, that's right--tanka too! Come on over and share your previously published works, or write something new if inspiration hits you. You'll find a group of poets who care about haiku and tanka, enjoy reading it and commenting on it when they do. (Here's the link to the latest prompt - blue eucalyptus)

cold moon
still the weight of her baby
in my arms

in that deepest green . . .
the mountain alone
has left its imprint
on my psyche

I have this one wish
not to feel
like I’ll always carry
that scared little girl
