Dark Days - a shadorma

 Tanka Tuesday #204

The challenge is a syllabic poem inspired by this haiku by Sue Vincent.

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

Mine is a shadorma.


The sunrise

hides.  I understand

and agree.

Who would want

to show her face in these days?

I stay hidden too.
