Distant Sunsets (tanka)

Updated on January 30, 2015

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

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

      This is sad and touching Martin - great image to reflect those evocative words.

      A sad but beautifully poignant poem.

      You certainly have a way with words, Martin.

      Happy Easter, my friend.
