tanka, other poetry, & insignificant writings of janet lynn davis
Janet, this is so poignant & sad! Anyone who has ever cared for the very old can relate to this one--although, in the volumes it leaves unsaid, it could apply to many situations. Very moving.
Glad this poem works for you!Sad (and frustrating at times for all), that world. But in another way, perhaps not so sad, because it just "is" (and no less "real" than other worlds). And then we find peace?Anyway, thanks for your thought-provoking comments, as always.
So much said in this poem, wonderful depiction of caring for another and the sadness of someone being in a place others can't fully understand. Very moving.
Thanks for posting, Lisa. Your comments mean a lot to me.
