I love how you set up the last line as a metaphor for nature affecting each person, individually. It’s brilliant.
I couldn’t quite manage to use nature-inspired imagery in any of the tankas I’ve attempted, so I respect how you pulled it off. I love how each line contains such lovely language.

Absolutely gorgeous, Nat. You seem to really grok the tanka. You know, in a way, yours and mine are sort of reflections of each other.

I love the image of waves kissing the shoreline. I have not attempted the tanka yet. You seem to have mastered it 🙂
I’ve never thought of erosion as romantic before.
