    Stepping out on ice,
    Falling flat on his fanny-
    Slipping and sliding.
    Maintaining a sense of pride
    No longer his great desire.

      This is a clever tanka! :D
    Kinda funny how momentum and inertia make abstract ideas like pride fly out the window, eh?
    thanks for a lighthearted read. :)

      Cool poem...self preservation comes before pride and his first concern becomes getting off alive...great metaphor for life. Enjoyable on many levels

      Certain wisdom there. There are certainly things we need worse than pride, like just about everything. In fact pride is probably a much greater liability than most realize.
    Never heard of a tanka, is that a particular form?

      From the title I thought this would be a little more Paul Simon. There's a lot of alliteration, and that's always good. This is how I felt once after running into a radiator pipe where I used to work.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
