Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

On the Edge

Please visit this site to find all sorts of writing challenges:
Brennie's Dreamscape

The challenge for this one was to write a Japanese Tanka (5-7-5-7-7 syllable format). It was to include the words: edge, restless, and soul. Please visit Brennie's Dreamscape Winter Whispers for further details about Tanka.

On the edge of night,
I am restless as my soul
Longs to hold you close
To taste your gentle kisses
Falling free upon my lips.

  1. That is such a simple poem, but great word choices that the sentiment is dripping from it. I can taste the longing!

  2. @Miel et Lait

    Thank you, Miel. I am glad that the feeling came through. :)

    While I've written Haiku before, I've never tried a Tanka before. Actually, I had never even heard of this form until I found that writing challenge site.

    Thanks so much for your comments. I hope that you have a great evening!

  3. Thank you, Miel! I appreciate that very much. I am glad that you could feel it from this little poem. Sometimes the little ones are harder to do than the longer forms of poetry, but this one came fairly easy for me. Thanks again!
