Fragments (Tanka)


Fragments of my life
flit and flutter past me,
Shards of silvered glass
petals on a winter breeze,
Beauty promised, my hands bleed.

Dedicated to those who dare remember their past, only to reawaken it.

A Tanka is a 31 syllable (5-7-5-7-7) poem with one theme/image per line creating an overall emotional or visual impression.
