Tanka 7

before turning in
I twist my head to witness
something wonderful -
a silver bridge
across the lake

    That would be wonderful to see. it reminds me of Bridge over troubled water, with the reference that song makes to "sail on silver girl"

    It's open to interpretation, but I was inspired by a passage in a book. A boy was trying to get closer to nature so he lived in the wild. And just before heading to bed, he noticed a bridge of moonlight across the lake, and was completely awestruck by it.

    Perhaps you will soon cross that bridge and introduce us to another adventure.

    :) What a sight! You really have come to love the Tanka form! I've tried one or two, but it doesn't work for me! :( Oh well...hey, thanks for all the insightful comments on my work. I love hearing from you and I've responded to all your posts! At home preparing for a class this evening, but going to spend some time reading some of your poems. Lovely break! :)

    You are such an easy going yet spunky person. And your comments are far too kind (though my ego thanks you greatly... haha). These tiny Japanese poetry forms fascinate me...
