Tanka

This tanka is my original composition when I was still in college.

tanka

The lofty clouds bow

The mountain stands and rises

A man of love smiles

While the sun and vales collide

Gaieties surround each life.

Amidst this pandemic we all are looking forward to having peace of mind and heart. Things we usually get when we go out in nature but it seems a little bit difficult nowadays that's why I wrote them. Thanks again, Brenda for the appreciation. I am very happy reading your remarks.

Tanka is a Japanese word which means short poem, sir Ryan. There's no limit to our imagination if we put our heart in it. Go and enjoy.

What language is the word tanka? How I wish to be in the place you just described, and sit there for a while.
