#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 100 – Celebrations & Century

Thanks, Elsie for your wonderful challenges which gave me something to think and made me try other types of poetry. I will miss these challenges.

Mother’s century
Though we could not celebrate
As she passed away
Three years before completing
Seeing her pain and discomfort
I prayed for her departure
Whom we love can’t see in pain
( This is not a Tanka but had to add the last line)

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Nice one, you could call this a – Bussokusekika Poetry – a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7-7 which is a Tanka poem with an extra phrase of seven added on at the end.
    Have a nice week.

  3. Beautiful, Indira. “I prayed for her departure” stood out for me. It’s difficult watching someone we love endure pain, so when we know they’re near their departure, our prayers shift into compassion, wanting to put an end to their suffering. Hugs, my friend…
