Gatekeeper

You won't weep for me

as I would not hear your cries

Bury not the dead

 

It's part of you that has passed

You bury yourself instead

Wow Gatekeeper, How true this is. Beautifully written. I'm thinking you have at least another 1000 tankas to share, can't wait to read them.

Striking ending. In our face.....in a good way.

An eloquent take on the controversial saying that "funerals are for the living not the dead."

Thanks for the kind words.

 

Not likely I'll ever get the haikus, senryus or tankas ever counted. I would rather write new ones.
