carpe diem, Poetry

beacon bright

Japanese lampions
carpe diem no. 1268 shuntoo (spring lantern)

nightfall free alight
sleepy darkness awakens
quiet kindness kiss
there by the window still bare
afar lights flaming fire

note to self… how sweet the tanka is.. the way it unfolds and sings so sweetly… hard work but worthy of every word that inspires for more…
