Awesome guys, I haven't written much nature oriented poetry, but it's my favorite topic when it comes to poetry. Actually I haven't written much poetry at all lol. I haven't tried Tanka, other formal structures I've tried my hand at are the sestina and sonnet forms. I'll post another nature poem I wrote, hopefully it's enjoyable.

One I wrote in the distant past:

shoulder straps creaking
stepping deliberately
mountain trails unfold
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
