This poem is for #TankaTuesday, hosted by Colleen Chesebro of Word Craft – Prose & Poetry blog.

The challenge is a themed #tanka based on this lovely #haiku by Sue Vincent:

clouds cover the moon,
beyond dawn's pale horizon
sun rises unseen

My two tankas blend inspiration from Sue’s haiku with inspiration from this photo I took recently:

Windless day
at the edge of the earth
turning windmill
moon above the horizon
fields surround and envelope

Big sky wide earth
road leads to the unknown
past the windmill
keep going through the clouds
turn left at the moon
