Wonderful to hear from you, Delice, and to read your fine tanka. I love the form even more than the haiku because so much can be said in a few words, and I am very short winded in my old age. There is a delicious fight in your observation. Love, daver

The aging process has definitely made me short winded in how I approach poetry. Like yourself haiku and tanka are my favourite forms. One never needs to be short of inspiration, seasonal poetry is always appreciated~Delice
