tanka, other poetry, & insignificant writings of janet lynn davis
Unusual love is sometimes a gift!
Hi, Vandana. I'm not sure I understand your comment, but thanks! (Maybe it applies to your interpretation of "why am I drawn…?")
These two poems go together so well, each using the sight of a common wild creature as the occasion for a self-reflective question. . . and the two questions reverberate with each other, adding layers of complexity to the pair of poems.
Yes, we are like that, no? You have a gift of getting right to the heart of humanity in your poems.
thank you for the v. thoughtful feedback, jenny and jennifer. :)
I too, am plagued with racing thoughts. Though, I have found that writing and reading poetry helps to "park" them - at least for a bit. Smiles.
