the farm boy

amidst the green field
behind grandpa’s old brick house
lies a broken fridge,
unmindful of time passing
until my mom calls me home.

    This made me smile-- wonderful thoughts on childhood you have here -- and I sure was wondering whether you were Pinoy? Are you? Since you figured out my jejemon write so well-- and then I read down below and read you are Ernesto! You sure got me-- clever way of reversing your name-- it looks so cool too! Thanks for dropping by my poems, I hope to read new ones from you too :) --nikko :)

    This a great Tanka for sure. The imagery really brings to life the scene behind grandpa's old brick house. Excellent. Best wishes in the contest. Chris.
