The Mist (tanka)

Updated on November 4, 2015

Comfort is the mist

Which softens the bitter edge

In uncertain veils

Swept a maiden in its arms

That she might not see the truth

      So very lovely. I think your use of the elf princess applies well here!

      Quite often the truth is out there but we are not aware of it.

      Wow, Martin. I was thinking in a totally different direction. That's the beauty of the written word: each reader comes to his/her own conclusion and perspective.

      Oh, the things we don't see when we intentionally do not want to see and more often they are all in the name of love. :)

      Very nicely done, that she might not see the truth indeed.
