Familiar Stranger (tanka)

Updated on September 2, 2014

Patiently waiting

In the silence of his time

When all else rested

Returns familiar stranger

From the mirror of his soul

      Pretty deep, Martin. We should all take a good look at ourselves from time to time.

      Powerful "reflection" on what we see and wish to reclaim. Love it. Masterful work as usual. Voted up and interesting. So good to have you back here posting. Still enjoying you on Twitter. :)
