210

A few thoughtless words.
An apology. Regret.
And then reflection;
Next time, consideration
And attempt to empathise.

4.5.17
First try at a tanka, 5-7-5-7-7 structure.

You sat for a while
Heavily burdened, it seemed
You rose, and moved on

30.4.17-3.5.17

208

Sat on the outside
Only half a room away
Feels like half a world

30.4.17-3.5.17

207

Sat at the centre
Curled, head in your hands, silent
Did you reach your goal?

30.4.17

206

I watched the walkers
Treading the labyrinth’s path
But feared to join them.

Mondrian windows
Pinks and browns, yellows, orange
Catch the setting sun.

30.4.17

204

Once brilliant gems
Are dulled now, their lustre lost
Set beside your eyes

30.4.17-3.5.17

203

Sudden April snow
Falls slowly, drifts, merges with
The cherry blossom.

30.4.17

202

Turning on one side
Pain a sheet pulled over me
Am I dreaming now?

2016

201

Sun stole across me.
Your arm lay warm on my chest,
Gently slid away
