colorful blossom ~ tanka

colorful blossom
returning light with beauty
lotus in the sun
clouds drifting across the sky
unable to steal its light

This tanka is my response to
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #93: lotus.
Also, with light & beauty as this author’s choice of keywords, this is a response to
Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 134.
