while hunting in the forest

is beset by thirst

Salmacis looks for his love

in an eternal embrace

    Excellent Tanka, Bob. I love Greek nymph lore. I loosely base my fairy nymphs in my series off of the Greek mythology. It’s YA fiction so I don’t get into the sexuality, etc. Instead, I portray them as more benevolent and centered around the care of the earth. You Tanka pulls all the necessary parts of the story though. Well done!!
