Tanka and other short form poetry
Just passed by your blog,n the stay was good. :)
We need our loneliness to write, and to sing too, sometimes...But watching the birds, i always thought...the lonely ones sings the sweetest, beautiful again, Paul :)wishes, devika
Perhaps i should be saying we need to be 'alone' to write...and knowing 'loneliness' is key to a good poet, thats understood i guess, still wanted to clarify, wishes, devika
The repetition of "yes", knowing loneliness more than once?
I really like that.
shootingstar, welcome to Paper Moon. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your first visit. You are welcome any time.Devika, Pacze Moj & Jason thank you for taking the time to comment. As always it is much appreciated.Pacze Moi, the repetition of 'yes' as you say could underline that loneliness is / has been experienced more than once.In writing the poem I used it to break through the robin's persistent song...yes yes I can hear you... I understand what you are singing...I hope that makes sense.
A wonderful juxtaposition of images, Paul...
Thanks Frank, your comments are a source of encouragement.
