Lover Forever (tanka)

Updated on July 4, 2013

Lover forever

Wandering through paradise

Scented by a dream

Far more real than tomorrow

Can ever bring out to bear

      To write as you do, one must have as equally large a heart as they do a mind... thank you for sharing the contents of both.

      Sometimes dreams can be amazingly real. Nice work, Martin.

      Martin, beautifully done, sometimes the dreams are far more real than tomorrow. This is beautiful, but it evokes some sadness to.

      My very best to you.

      Five lines can do so much magic!

      That is very pretty. "scented by a dream" is an interesting line.

      Have a great weekend, Martin.

      Those who have found forever love should hold on for dear life. Some of us have never found it.

      "Scented by a dream." I'm sure I understand that, but might never have expressed it. I admire your poetic skill.

      I have never had a forever love but I am sure that is what it must seem like. A good person, lover, friend, confidante, is a great thing to always have with you.

      I have a forever love...who is not in my life now but remains forever in my heart. Someone who remains now as a friend who is always in contact with me down through the ages.

      These words so beautifully express that love, Dear Martin.

      You are a gift to us.Angels are on the way ps

      You are truly an expert at these tanka poetry dear Mh. You say so much and with much impact felt deeply with so few words (of course that is a tanka---few words). Very lovely as to love.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper
