Memories Thorns

Picked before you bloomed 
your loss brings me to my knees 
playbacks run too long 
remembrances felt so strong... 
slipping now into my dreams

    I think our world is not the place, just a learning curve, leaves a bad taste, and handicaps occur, and we are born to face, the unknown lesson there, till bad karma we erase, sow to reap for your mistake, old religions do concur, hard life is no mistake, until heaven does demur...

    So poignant in such few lines, Debra! A masterpiece! Congrats to the winner, happy you, if it's your first tanka. I love this marvellous form but I can't get to it, somehow, how hard I try. I'll take the courage from you! :) Love, Hanitra

    Cosmos calling out my name to come and fan eternal flame. Angelic choir sounds so sweet. All dressed in white at our lords feet. Ethereal clouds of slumbers flight. Instill serenity tonight.
