Tanka – Loneliness

 

Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #17 loneliness

on the balcony
gazing at the calm river
ducklings in a row
couple strolling hand in hand
watching, my pain is hidden

birds fly back and forth
loneliness separating me
memories long passed
alone in all this beauty
world outside I cannot hold
