Memories

Tanka #6

With the silent dawn
fog rides in on summer's surf.
Shoring memories
of your caress on my skin.
Reminder of what once was.

I know nothing about tanka, but its purported characteristics notwithstanding, this is expressive and lovely, lyrical.

Evocative, but it made me wistful, almost sad.

Thanks Tony and Marti.     Tanka is the form originally used as love notes between Japanese nobles.   I wanted this poem, which by the way has been entered into "Tanka" contest, to honor the original form but be different from the other entries.   It was meant to be "wistful, almost sad".   Thank for recognizing that Marti.

PS.  I won.
