That Stranger There (tanka)

What flowers will bloom

In the footsteps left behind

From that stranger there

Whose music caused hearts to dance

Through a dream of what might be

      Boy how I love your tankas! I'd reference my favorite line, but look silly repeating the entire tanka! :D Beautiful, nonetheless!
