Shattered Peace

This tanka is in response to Heeding Haiku With HA: Be Inspired # 4 over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.

The Poet Reclining by Marc Chagall

Tranquil silence is
No longer in my future
The cries of the dead
Ever screaming in my mind
We will never rest again

  1. Quite haunting, like the pallor on the face of the subject in the painting. The middle line works really well, which is quite significant in a tanka. Very well-penned.
    Thank you for sharing your words with us at Heeding Haiku With HA this week. 🙂
