Years of memories
recalled on these printed pages,
sharing thoughts thought lost,
you all learn too much of me
while I learn more of myself
Almost exactly five months ago, right after I broke the bottle over the bow of this digital ship of verse and such, I wrote my first poem for consumption of the One Stop Poetry audience. It was Japanese tanka with a Valentine’s Day theme. Well, for me it was.
Thought I’d revisit that form, as we have just passed the one-year anniversary for One Stop and we say au revoir to a clutch of friends I made there.
