His Window (tanka)

Updated on July 15, 2013

What is it he sees

Staring into the distance

Through his closed window

Which took a lifetime to build

And protects him from the wind

      One thing I love about these tankas is they say so much with so few words and they seem to be very open to interpretation. They definitely always get me thinking. Beautiful, as always.

      Interesting tanka here, Mh. I can picture him looking out onto a large body of water stretching to the horizon.

      Perhaps he should open the window and enjoy the wind!
