very good David
Dave this is an absolute gem of a tanka. Really heart-felt!
Makes me feel guilty. For there isn't only one card ...Best wishesRalf
Thanks everyone! I have only started experimenting with tanka recently. I have only written a handful, but for the most part they are concerned with the loss of my mother from cancer in 2006. I think things have been bottled up and I haven't been able to express my grief in haiku form - it doesn't seem right somehow. Tanka seems to have unlocked something for me.
A very bitter-sweet moment, Dave. My mother too passed away in 2006...
Good for you, Dave. I, too, find writing to be a beautiful way to express my feelings, including grief. We lost my husband's dad in '07 and losing a parent is something you can't imagine until it happens to you. I understand. Sending up prayers for you as you work through it. This is a wonderful tanka!Sincerely,Kristin
