    'Tis a lovely form, a lovely poem by a lovely poetess with a pen of pure gold who knows how to reach in and touch all the right places to light the flame of tender arousal. Subtly sensual, but deeply sizzling when pulled in-between the lines; a mature poem fro knowing adults, your sills shine brightly all through this one, sooo vividly I felt your feelings, Carol. Simply beautiful, Milady ~ Love, Rascal

    Hullo, Carol. You know I am pretentious when it comes to tanka - lately it is the only form that I am truly trying to reinvent while also keeping to the ancient disciplines. For me the English syllable count is too high(you know the debate lol!), BUT you nailed the romanticism that all good tanka should have. You have the opening scene set-off by personal thoughts/feelings in the 2nd part of the tanka, which is EXACTLY wot it is all about. To me, you captured the tanka essence wonderfully.
