TANKA 22: Nostalgia



Spring is drawing near
Earth will be filled with cheers
Guess it can’t be helped
To cherish the memories we’ve shared
Everytime this season appears

TANKA 20: Sakura


Smile that blossoms like cherry
A flower that radiates positivity
Spring brings us all sheer bliss
And wipes all our fears, our bitterness
Truly a season we’d hate to miss

The burst of greens
Fresh air that lingers within
A dose of own’s medicine
Burnt bridges, cherished things
Home for souls with shattered wings

TANKA 16 : Nature


Nature‘s a double-edged sword
Global warming‘s one of its wraths unfold
Cost of our abuse untold
Unleashing its power which is tenfold
Just as its beauty our sight behold

When I was One and Twenty


When I was one and twenty
I believed I knew enough plenty
I left the world of novice
As soon as I tasted a man’s kiss

Gifted not only with physical beauty
But also with a mind so witty
I became an object of other girls’ envy
But a victim of such vanity
