I like how the poem looks to the past --

-- yet seems to conclude it should "be forgot and never brought to mind." Super occasional tanka!

I could read regret, remorse, an overwhelming realisation of failure and doubt; instead I've taken the moment as an honest one, lessons learnt from experience, and with this knowledge I would hope not to repeat the same errors.

Absolutely beautiful, goldenlangur. But I don't even expect ever to see not so good tanka from you :). As I mentioned earlier, you are one of the best tanka writers.

 

Much enjoyed.
