The Unforgiving Heart – Tanka

Once a luscious leaf
Now moaning in the garden
Caterpillar’s deed
Unforgiveness in your heart
Feeds voraciously on love

      Yes, John. It’s one of the greatest gifts of love we can give to ourselves and others. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking time to comment. I do appreciate it. 🙂

    Beautiful tanka.

    I enjoyed the complementary game between the adjective “luscious”
    and the adverb ” voraciously “…

    Besides, the picture matches perfectly with the idea of Unforgiveness which feeds insatiably on love…

    Witty and keen poem; my dear.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Cheers, Aquileana 🙂

    Thank you, Aquileana. I’m truly honoured you took the time to analyse my little poem, appreciating the choice of vocabulary as well as the photo to compliment the idea of Unforgiveness. So happy you like it. Cheers 🙂 Irina
