Distant Sunsets (tanka)

Shadows came to play

Where flowers once had their way

Those far away days

Which in our hearts still blazes

As we gaze distant sunsets

A sad but beautifully poignant poem.

You certainly have a way with words, Martin.

Happy Easter, my friend.

Memories can come from so many things that will trigger them.

Voted up and awesome. Love this as much as the first time I read it.
