Simple and pure. I like this.


on the coldest night
I feel your heart deflecting
the chill of Winter

inside I am warmed and safe
join me as Summer returns
may I give this to you from Samuel? your words were special to me...thank you

Peace, hp

What a beautiful and resonant tanka, Julie!

It is the point of mother's love, and sometimes it gets lost in the anger and pain.

My very best to you.

Lady Nyo....life can be overwhelming, neh?

oh I feel for you and your son Samuel. It's hard to be a kid these days.


Very moving is so few words. Well done!
Sometimes 'no' is our only bit of power...

Thanks for visiting my blog.
