Each sunrise speaks softly
Clouds seem to promise respite
Yet they perish thirsty
Sans water, sans loving friends
Haunted by the cleft curse queen.

  1. Balroop, wow! A soft positive beginning of the poem before the darkness incipiently takes over! Wonderful powerful tanka and a form that is not easy!

  2. You do have a lovely way of writing. I thought this poem was intriguing and I was drawn into reading. I liked how it started of so positive and it felt wonderful then changed and haunted and darkness took over. Very creative and the photo has created a great scene. Thank you for sharing
