Tanka For The Rose

Days In The Blackberries Field

Oh, beautiful rose,
why are you withered early?
Calling out your name
mother’s tears on the coffin
today cannot wake you up.

For Carpe Diem Ghost Writer #16, Jen of Blog It or Loose It on ”Tanka by Shiki”

      1. Thank you, Jen. She was not my blood family but my ex pupil who I met as shy 10 years old girl. She was someone who constantly reminded me what is the biggest value of my profession. Your post on CD was so beautiful and touching, thank you.


Why don't you say something? ;)
