The Love Note

Arthritic fingers Unfold the crumbling parchment Stained with tears and words Her blind eyes no longer see And feels the deep impressions Still there after all these years For Rick's contest

There is this unique insurance your works always give my expectations And that satisfaction only builds more castles for my curiosity to thrive, waiting for subsequent results of your talent and thinking.

An awesome tanka, Elaine; very touched by it. I can close my eyes and picture it so clearly...the effects of old age and a memory that will never die. ~ Regards // paul
