MALAYSIAN HAIKU/TANKA ECHOES 195: ROOF

Claudia McGill composed an excellent haiku on an old stone structure:

 

Red roof tiles slick up

 turn silver backs to the sky

 in the pounding rain

 

I was so inspired reading it, and added two extra seven syllables-line to turn her haiku into a tanka:

 

shelter against sun and rain

strong and leaked proof over years
