Prompt 53: The First Anniversay of OSI: Circles

Edward of Forest River Journal offers this tanka and photo for the prompt circles. Thanks, Edward.

Somebody comes by,
He see stones, then builds something.
It stands for that day,
As we all walk by and see it.
Next day, somebody comes by....


Edward's photograph is entitled "Pieces of a Labyrinth."

Our thanks go to all of you who have shared your work here over the past year. Happy anniversary to all of us!
