wind rustling leaves ~ tanka


wind through the trees
the ocean
in my heart
                    Rachel Sutcliffe

wind rustling leaves
sound of waves lapping the shore
willow branches trail
comfort found in sights and sounds
my heart at peace in nature

Rachel Sutcliffe, an accomplished and recognized haiku poet, has died.
In #Haikai Challenge #70: Rachel Sutcliffe, Frank Tassone asks us write
