咲くその木
春風に舞う
緩めた手
抱きしめ止めた
探しても無駄

Saku sono ki
Harukaze ni mau
Yurumeta te
Dakishime tometa
Sagashitemo muda

This blooming tree
Dancing in the spring wind
The hand I've loosened
Ceased to embrace me
It's futile even if I search for it

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-04
Spring is a season of growth, yet this is not what we sense in Te by ZetsubouDahlia.  This tanka is ripe with the symbolism shared between a fruitless friendship and an overreaching tree; from tree limbs to our own arms. ( Suggested by Nichrysalis and Featured by GrimFace242 )

I'm very happy, thank you! There's a mistake in this post though, the title for this tanka is "te", which is Japanese for "hand", and on Twitter it's written as "Tea" :)

Haha, I think I may have misunderstood the title, then. I'm using screenreading software, so it pronounced "te" as "tea." I of course read the text itself both ways, but confused the title. I will see about editing it, if Twitter will allow me.
