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

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

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