Tanka--By Archana Kapoor Nagpal--India

on both
the sides of the fence
these marigold flowers …
the only colour I see
from hospital window
____________

painting
a city skyline
on my canvas …
i find different shapes
in the clouds
____________

before
we exchange
wedding rings …
I close my eyes
to rethink

    I struggle to learn the Asian forms but with continued exposure to good writing like yours, I hope to grown into them.
    Thank you,

  3. All three Tanka are lovely and meaningful, Archana. I smiled at the last Tanka, yet it is a serious moment to ponder about! Regards // paul
