This work has reached the exceptional level
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.
