Favorite Quote:
“Hold fast to dreams for when dreams go, life is a barren field frozen with snow.” Langston Hughes

The lonely winter,
Breathed into her skin and bones
She stood shivering,
Frozen by serenity;
A snowflake fell from the sky

The author's comments:
A tanka is similar to haiku but it has more syllables and there are five lines in a Tanka poem.
