Here is my Tanka poem based on the photo prompt below. This was an especially inspiring photo, because I love classical music and as a child I watched and listened to my grandmother play such music on the piano. I invite you to listen to this beautiful waltz as you read the blog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=1s9oM_vNlyY
STRAUSS WALTZ AND ROSE Mozart wrote many Nocturnes, Waltzes, and Preludes But none could compare To the Strauss composition, Roses from the South, a waltz. A Strauss rose exists Inspired by this special waltz With blooms like his love For Adele Deutsch, his wife, Pure and sweet forever more. The pink bloom is strong As graceful fingers hold it Fragrant and perfect The Strauss waltz and rose flower Fill our souls with joy and peace.
As you listened to “Roses from the South” waltz, were you smiling, swaying, or did you get up and dance? Did you envision couples dancing in a large circle with women in their swirling dresses and men in tuxedoes? I hope it filled your soul with joy and peace. Please let me know how you reacted to it.
