"Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness."
Khalil Gibran

Tanka (Each Window)

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think.”
Buddha

Mi Young Lee


XXII

Each window opens
on a different daytime
a singular view –

Tragedy to one
who locks the door from inside.

A tiny tanka for Susie's Bits of Inspiration featuring the piece by artist, Mi Young Lee.

    One may unwittingly meddle with the goodness that brings 'chi' into the equation. Very true Kerry!
