Postcard Tankas

Soft cherry blossom
front steely trusses of bridge –
wispy memory
Snow peak gleaming in sunrays
Trilliums blooming by lake.

Crisscrossing bridges
On the willamette, light rail
Traversing downtown
My heart laid naked ready
to receive love’s soft caress.

Notes: Day 16 NaPoWriMo 2016. Prompt was Almanac Questionnaire and one of the question was picture on your city’s postcard. Penned two tankas.
