And indeed your tanka makes me feel joyful.
What a perfect tanka encompassing the reflecting, writing process of a haiku/tanka poet. Just love it!I also used to dictate into my iphone as I was walking to work if I saw something pretty along the way and knew I would forget that "phrase" my muse had blurted out.
Thanks for the compliment. Was recording some of the processes I have used.
This is the birth of a tanka ...
