The Storm (tanka)

Updated on August 18, 2013

It arrived in waves

Of an unexpected storm

Leaving in its wake

Bitter destruction of tears

Ashes of the argument

      That is a sad reality, especially for children.

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Sometimes certain things said in anger can hurt others.

      It's always the children who suffer. So sad that adults don't keep their arguments private.

      Good write, Martin.

      The picture says it all. Such outbursts of anger changes the emotional make-up of a child.

      I am glad that you addressed this, and did so through the grace of a tanka. Brilliantly done.

      Thank you,

      DJ.

      You chose a topic that seems to trouble most relationships at some time, but it's the children who suffer most. A good reminder.

      There is almost nothing more sad about our reality than that.

      Arguments between parents are always taken the hardest by the kids.

      I sure remember those days. It made me think that it was my fault.
