footsteps waken


footsteps waken
bullet-riddled quarter moon--
radio silence

44 cornstalks weep blood;
still hands clasp daughter's photo



This is the most I can do for now, been wanting to write something worthier,
 but haven't been able to...I hope I can even get near to doing so one day.

In honor of the 44 brave Special Actions Force Commandos that died in
Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25, 2015.

    This tanka hits hard...I'm almost sure I read about this, but I'll have to look it up to be sure. In a sense, I also live in a cave..;) It's good to hear from you, Nikko!

    Love it! You've captured the moment, and the readers (through your talent) are able to understand easily this drama. Congratulations on your win, dear Nikko! I'll follow your advice, I just need to find how to "maintain" the short-long-short-long-long sequence. Sending a big hug.

    OMG, is this Nikko??? I thought for sure it would be an American writing this one. but I see Charma down here saying Nikko. and now I am reading the name of where it took place. I am a moron to know nothing about this. you did a fantastic job, my friend. Can't believe I am seeing you entering a contest after being away for so long . A big congrats for you.
