TANKA TAKE HOME - 13 October, 2021

hosts: Firdaus Parvez & Kala Ramesh



side by side

we wake to the rush of

an ordinary day . . .

your lips graze my cheek

the scent of love lingers


Carol Raisfeld

Modern English Tanka 3, spring 2007


This beautiful tanka made me smile, it captures a special moment and pauses to savour it before 'the rush of an ordinary day' (I really loved that phrase). What special moment can you bring to your poem? We would love to read.
