The Stream (tanka)

Updated on May 26, 2015

Peaceful was the night

When the lovers found the stream

Wonder of the stars

Carrying soft crystal tears

Off to eternal ocean

      Did they their tears drip into the water as they were washed out to the ocean? Whatever, it was beautiful and interesting. I voted up, shared and pinned it.

      I can see the tears floating down the stream. Salty tears filling up the salty ocean. Beautiful!
