Hero (tanka)

Updated on June 8, 2015

Now the lights dim low

On the halls so different

Pictures still recall

Moments which were set aflame

By hero of his own time

      Very good, Martin. Your poem evokes sadness and nostalgia with gentle memories of a hero. I like it.

      Up, I, and H+

      What a wonderful poem Martin, it was so good that I cannot think of how to compliment it. Except that it has a hero. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.
