In the truest sense of Japanese tanka, you did a wonderful job, see in the US, people can't see the beauty in something so beautiful as what you wrote in most cases. This wasn't suppose to make anyone change environmental law,it was just to awaken our sense in a simplistic way.
and the soul man strikes again, what's up aken?, delightful write you have here, it's a tad haikuish and short crisp and to the point. Have you ever written a Eintou, it's a new form of african american poetry the format is on my "spoiled gift" submission. Anyhow great to see ya, keep penning...and happy New Year...Bob:)
