Haiku & Other Poetry, tutto e niente

to become transcendent

rising together

yesterday not forgotten

but looking ahead  

for the hope of tomorrow

is to become transcendent

Thanks to Colleen and her Tanka Tuesday Theme Prompt. Visit her site for details and great writing.

My tanka was inspired by current events as well as the provided theme: A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: 

“…Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time…”
