Raging River – Colleen’s Tanka Challenge

Panoramic view of the Suwanee River at Hart Springs.


River swells passed banks

fierce flow rapid and purging

scrubs development.

  1. Wow! That looks like a flood all right! I lived in Okeechobee, FL many years ago. We moved to Colorado from Pensacola a few years ago. One thing I know, Florida gets rain! You captured that perfectly. ❤


    1. I’ve been exploring many of the springs. Even the one I am staying at saw a bit of an overflow in one area. This haiku has an interesting back story. I posted an earlier version about 6 weeks ago and when I looked at it again, I knew I could do much better with it. Your challenge provided a perfect opportunity. Thank you, Colleen.
