in my diary
i’d kept an old note
anger wrinkled
then carefully smoothed
and glued to the page by tears

short winded
describes my last lover’s note
goodbye she says
on further pursuit she’s adamant
goodbye forever!

Blue tanka

gray days
are upon me
i wonder
now that you’re gone
is heaven blue?

    I'm lucky to be reading these tanka once again, Daver. Both 'Notes' and 'Blue Tanka' emit sadness, but different in texture. // paul

    A masterfully written Tanka with profound thoughts and feelings, dear daver! As far as the heaven is concerned, I would be surprised for it is like a chameleon taking the color of the heart in love! A seven!

    Love these, Daver, and thanks for visiting my poetry today. (cool line: Anger wrinkled)

    I loved both of these. How crushing the paper helps to crush the pain of the words in the note. Awesome twist in your blue tanka!
