Wandering Words (tanka)

Updated on February 25, 2013

Many are the words

Witten down on forever

Wandering the wire

Searching endlessly searching

For that which was never there

      You do have a way with words, my friend - and you have an amazing talent which allows you to arrange them in so many genres - so beautifully..

      Disappointment can happen as hard as we hope otherwise.

      I speak for myself here, but I wonder ------

      How difference my life might be if I gave my words of endearment to

      a person rather than a work of art?

      Very deep, Martin. Too often that's the case: we reach for that which is not within reach.
