Parting Waters

flowing waters drift
bearing shadows for display
frigid lifeless forms
  drained of all their loving warmth
  like you were that fateful dawn

    Congratulations on winning second place in my contest, TANKA - THE PIVOT, Tanya. I had come back to reread this a number of times and each time I found a new image come to mind. The contrast between the movement captured in the fist two lines, starkly contrasts the lifeless forms and the punchline had me wondering what intimate experience you were sharing with us - this has a feeling of regret, but also a measure of resignation. Love, Su
