Reflecting Pools (tanka)

Updated on December 17, 2015

Two men sit alone

Reflecting upon the past

In pools at their feet

One cries over all the dids

The other of the did nots

      This is so sad. It's a lovely poem, though.

      Do the things you need to do now...never wait because tomorrow may never come. So true what they say.

      Regret is a bitter pill to swallow.
