Traces. (Tanka)

Love Poems






rays reflect off clouds

another sunset shimmers 

warm October night 

on the grass beside the sea

a trace of you lingers still

Excellent job!

It's been a long time since I read a tanka. I'm no expert in these poems, but I certainly loved it! great word choice. strong meaning as well as purpose. flows great. I only wrote one poem in these gernes, and that is an haiku a long time ago. keep writing!
