Tanka Triplicate

As moments run down
Falling like foaming water
I become crystal,
Reflecting reasons to be
Light refracted endlessly.

Project, shall I once again?
The heart is willing,
The mind less, always objects;
Ability whispers, “Try.”

Lay the burden down,
Fear consuming too much soul,
With Faith become whole,
Trust days will continue by
Storms calm; hope, peace, love abide.

To you readers, would you like to have me post every day in 2022? Would you read it? Would you interact, at least some?


With this year ending soon, write some haiku or tanka on endings and beginnings.

Haiku have three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. Tanka have five lines of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables.
