~*Poetry's Beauty Tanka*~


From the heart to pen
such beauty in expression
words dance on paper!
Poetry delights the senses,
setting the weary soul free

That is a very nice poem. I really love it.
Too bad there are 8 syllables in the 4th line however.(not that I am picking.. I think it is great)

Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito. - Virgil.
"Yield thou not to adversity, but press on the more bravely".

A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.
