My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 17, 2010 “Tanka II”

Tanka II

morning sun glowing
lark singing a joyous song
great expectations
sounds of nature ringing out
a new day a new dawning

  4. After everything’s been slumbering, and all the yesterdays have been washed away, there is nothing more refreshing to see than a morning sun glowing. Sunrises to me always bring new clarity…it’s like a golden silence…with new hope…new opportunities…new life…new love…the secrets of a brand new day :):) Bliss. Well done Cowboy x

  13. There is something so (illogically?) visceral about “new.” New day, new love, new baby, even new stationery or new car: they all bring a response of optimism and anticipation in me. You’ve captured that. And I’m enjoying your journey down different poetic forms, too. Must try that sometime.

  14. Oh what a beautiful morning. Every writer wants to exclaim the new day, write a new word, sing a new song, smile a new smile, find a new love. Good job. Thanks. Gay
