COUNTING BACK




autumn star glimmers

lighting boughs on threadbare trees

          I count seasons back---

while eyes gaze at  young moon’s love

and shiver alone in chills




Suzette Crous’ Tanka- the Pivot Contest

    Congratulations on winning an Honorable Mention in my contest, TANKA - THE PIVOT, Nette. The trill of young love contrasts well with the cold of life's autumn. A poem with many layers and reminder to us all that in the end memories are all we have to keep us warm. Love, Su

    A great yet lonely poem. I can imagine it, how it feels like to be this person through this tanka. I don'y have any new poem, Nette, something wrong with my brain. Nothing can flow out, either the story or the words, I just blank. :'( I'm here cos i missed the soupers poems or maybe i can get some inspirations :)
