Sarah Potter Writes

Pursued by the Muses of prose and poetry

Tanka #2

Rain tumbles, birds swoop,
music floats from the red house–
melody recalled.
An old man, his piano,
a candelabra, her face.

  1. Sarah, this is so moving.


  2. Hi Sarah,
    I am just trying to catch up and am so far behind in my blogging. But I came upon this in my inbox. I must have kept it for some reason, I thought. Just reread it and got chills of appreciation. Oh, yes, THAT’s why I kept it there. It lives there still!


    • Hi Naomi,

      Yes, I get very behind, too, and save my favourites in my inbox for later comment. I’m glad you liked the tanka.

      Do you think I need to post something to explain more about tanka poetry, as I’m not sure everybody is as familiar with this form as they are with haiku?
