Getting lost is not a waste of time

before ~ a tanka

before sunset falls
for the tall dark unknown night
~ stay awhile with me
tomorrow the winds will change
come, let's make a memory

  1. So pretty. I love the “stay with me before the winds change,” alluding to the brief life of the butterfly in the image, as well as human relationships.

  2. Absolutely captivating opening – lovely word play and imagery blooms, and then follows through. There’s such a wonderful softness to this, a breathiness – filled with longing and a sense of time’s fleeting wings. Truly a pleasure to read πŸ™‚
