Love Note

I found your cuff link
glinting like a lonely star 
on the closet floor
looking as lost as I feel
pining for your star-bright smiles


For Rick's love note/tanka contest

    Positively resplendent! The loneliness in this poem can be distinctly felt! Hmmph... you won another contest. I am getting jealous. Maybe you could coach me in the finer points of poetry. ~ Did you know that you are the absolute best commentator on the soup? I was pleased as punch and nearly et my hat when I read your last one.

    oh wow, this is just perfect in every way, heather - "glinting like a lonely star" is a wonderful simile, and "star-bright smiles" is spot on, linking in nicely with that second line; can't see this as anything other than a top ranking tanka, great work :)

    The simple things, the strongest memories. Beautiful!
