Cinder (Tanka)


My limbs have grown weak

mounted passions laid to rest

through lackluster nights

as heaven’s throat becalms me

I smell the smoldered embers.

    Lovely, lovely work, Liza. Though this is a tanka, I especially enjoy your haiku and believe you have a gift from the Father in that particular verse form. I wish to thank you so much for visiting my haiku site and for “liking” what I do. I am now a follower of your blog and look forward to the fruit of your mind and spirit. May you be richly blessed!!


    • I am completely humbled by your comment, Ron. I appreciate you taking the time to read and submitting your thoughts. Your recognition is embraced.
      I, too, look forward to reading more of your work.
      Stay blessed.
