#41 (crystal)

from empty orbits

death jealously looks upon

life’s crystal vision

  1. Hello Marian. I’m glad you found Tanka Tuesday through David. He’s the best for helping you through your first submission. Let me know if you need more help. This Waterhouse painting is so full of possibilities. I wonder what she saw in that crystal ball? ❤

      1. My pleasure❣️

        BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’, which is my first name. The word ‘ben’ simply means ‘son of’ in Hebrew, and my father’s name was ‘Alexander’ – I created my blog in his memory.

        All best,

      2. David, thanks for doing that. I was just about to follow the instructions again. I will go back into your site and copy the link reciprocally to my blog post. Sorry for my mistake with the “ben” I should have known that.
        Best wishes,
        PS. I amended a couple of words in the Haiku in my blog – I think it is improved now. The last two words of the 2nd line.

      3. would you like me to consider it a submission for ‘Poetry Partners’ too? (that’s what you first submitted this piece for, which is how I found it)

        I’m happy to publish any poem you’ve written and respond to it with one of my own 🙂
