Strokes Upon A Heart (tanka)

Updated on September 4, 2013

Searching for a voice

Which was heard so long ago

Strokes upon a heart

Just to find it always there

Drowned out by a world of noise

      Sometimes you need to close your eyes and shut the world out in order to hear. Love this, Martin.
