My white wedding dress
  Now on my eldest daughter
    Twirling in mirror
      I hope in twenty years she
        Won’t be invisible too

For the "Tanka- Love and Marriage"  and "Tanka - the pivot" contest

    Congratulations on winning an Honorable Mention in my contest, TANKA - THE PIVOT, Susan. Pity about the capital letters - it was one of the rules of the contest. This is an amazing write and I could identify with the emotions which this scene had evoked. I hear a deep sigh in the punchline. Love, Su
