Under Moonlight

                               hand caresses
                               the empty pillow 
                               under moonlight 
                                  white line on finger
                                  that used to shine

    Excellent use of the pivot in this tanka! And the syllable count is fascinating. Keep up the stellar work, Ruben.

    you would know about drooling, since you can't keep it in your pants. I'm glad you feel that way. you should not be the one who should talk. your poem above looks like the list in my bedroom

    I really like your tanka..especially the white line...[yes the single tanka stiffled me I wrote the sequence first..the sequence is much better more original in form using repition of line and intended to create urgency.} Light & Love

    This deserves a round of applause for your well deserved win in the contest! Kudos!

    No poems since this one. Ruben O. where did you go? Are you out caressing other pillows and giving the gift of your verse in quest of another golden ring? Be careful! Enjoyed reading this verse, Ernest.

    maudlin [sigh] the knuckle on my ring finger never did go back to normal. I think if something deforms you [meaning me] one should get the hint? [perhaps ..a white lined finger or a white ringed finger] Light & Love

    I never tire of this poem - LOVE it :-). Per the question re Suzette Prime: You may use any sequence of prime numbers per line. The philosophical statement may be weaved into the poem or a single line statement, but form a logically part of the poem. X, Su
