Tear Drops~Tanka

Tear George Hodan

tears fall quickly down

I wait for them to hear me

the sound ceases now

accept the lake of tears

meet the new day with new joy

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. The Tanka you wrote is so cleansing – washing away what was. You are good at using the words and make them yours. I put them out there and those who meet the challenge work to make them into something special. You are quite successful. I hope the chosen words are always so inspirational. – jk
