A Person Drowned (tanka)

Updated on May 11, 2015

The lake was peaceful

The day that he took his life

Drowning in waters

A person others once knew

As he rose to meet his day

      A complete story in five lines. Not an easy thing to do. Well done, Martin!

      Sad but Great job on the tanka poetry. You got so much information in so few lines.
