Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~ William Wordsworth
Simple and reverent. I like the balance created by the repetition: breathe/breathes and alive/life.
Thank you. The fact that you called it reverent made my day.
Lovely little tanka! And for me, this is the kind of revelation that comes upon us suddenly, unexpectedly, almost between breaths. You encapsulated it nicely.
Thank you so much Christine for such encouraging words
Wow ruby! Such an effervescent balance of life and death...
Thank you Sumana. It is so heartening to hear your encouraging words.
Since every thought is a seed, I am looking forward to a delicious harvest.
