tanka is a Japanese short form
tanka (red petals drop)
by Val Crisson
red petals drop
to a cold hospital floor
life support unplugged
and heart machine flatlines
This tanka has been written in the true form of Japanese Short Form. I am hoping to inspire others, to look into these forms. For me less says more, and I hope this little tanka shows that.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
