"I am hearing poetry when awake,
dreaming poetry when asleep,
breathing poetry with each breath,
I am living in a poem."
this is sweet.....a beutiful tanka
I really like the comparison between the old letters and a dead leaf. I wonder why we keep old letters, hanging onto the past never brings it back, as your metaphor so aptly shows.The tanka form is tight, with upper and lower parts playing off one another.
Dead leaf song- what an imagery of lost innocence ~ A lovely tanka Susie ~ Merry Christmas to you and your family ~
Lovely imagery of lost innocence ... memories tucked away ... perhaps yearning to be set free.Happy Holidays, Susie :)
this is so suggestive, Susie... my mind is racing with ideas about what might be written on those long-ago stored pages. very nice!
Gorgeous imagery, Susie.
Dead leaf and lost innocence- perfect pairing. Well crafted.-HA
O to kick up leaves again, loosing innocence is such a shame. You captured it well Susie
Your two opening lines are glorious.......fantastic write, Susie.
What a lovely expression of past innocence. I loved the opening line...
Good poem, the intricacies of existence!
Beautifully done! Susie you are so talented with this form~
