Waters Of Life (tanka)

Updated on May 25, 2013

Take one lasting look

Across the waters of our life

Moments refreshing

Softly flowing past the lips

Of meadows ever after

      Thanks for sharing this. I've yet to try my hand at a Tanka, but, it's on my list of things to try.

      The haunting beauty pictured above lets me slip into the quiet reflection you seem destined to let flow from within.

      I truly am awed by the talent you have for creating such powerful imagery.
