The Forest (tanka)

Updated on May 29, 2015

Dark was the forest

Were the people heard a roar

Never heard before

So they cut down every tree

An still couldn’t find their fear

      This one really makes you think Martin! Do we ever really find the fear?

      Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

      They did the wrong thing by cutting the trees. They should have followed the sound.

      I voted up, shared and pinned it.

      Such a waste! Think of all the life lost in that fallen forest.
