Haiku & Other Poetry, tutto e niente

the day after you left (a tanka)

to defy the dark

I stand on the precipice

heart beating in time

as destiny’s reflection    

brightens the murky waters

Thanks for the inspiration to Sue’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge. This is a bit of a companion piece to this morning’s piece for Sadje’s What Do You See challenge: the night before you left.

So visit it as well if you’d like. 🙂

  1. Read this, went over to read “the night before” and came back here to read this , which now seems even more awesome than the 1st time around. Stay on that precipice, siste; don’t let the murk draw you in. Great piece(s).
