I would like to issue one more 'challenge' to the grand-fine poets of 'P.I.P.-world.'  In view of recent 'current events' in America (and, more positively, simply in honor of the arrival of Springtime)....please join me in the creation of some tributes to LOVE!!

PLEASE: post your 'LOVE Tanka' in open forum # 40 and provide the link here!

syllable count per line:

1.  5
2.  7
3.  5
4.  7
5.  7




Timeless Love

Bewildered sunlight
teasing broken hearts awake
with sad, sleepy thoughts
slipping dream-enchanted gates;
remembering Timeless Love!


"No one can lay a hand on our dreams!"
   --E. V. Lucas

Bruce~
I'm responding again to bump this to the Today's Topics page so it may be seen by many others~

I do have a suggestion - :idea:

When posting a challenge, be sure to give the format of the particular challenge so that others can learn more~

A Tanka is formatted as follows -

5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables
7 syllables
7 syllables

Hope we get to see even more of these fantastic pieces of poetry~

How is now,  dear Marge,

Harbor

Your smile flowing out
Gentle waves sways tenderly  
Along the warm light
Of your eyes nudging the sail
Moving toward the quiet harbor

Learning what love means
Is the best feeling of peace
The powers of love
Growing stronger everyday
showing love in everyway

i am learning and teaching
but really just loving love!
