When The Saints

Voices sing in praise
I follow the joyous sound
And see the cohort
Of saintly choir members
From behind the pearly gates


This was written for Colleen Cheseboro’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday #111 – ‘Celebrate and Number.’  When I saw the prompt words, I was reminded of the classic hymn ‘When the Saints Come Marching In’ and allowed that to inspire this week’s tanka.
