Escape – A Tanka

escape

 

Hectic lives forged in

An urban cacophony,

The clamour and din;

We all need a tranquil space

To let peace and quiet in.

Reflections – A Tanka

reflections

 

Deep within your head,

Social values play their game,

Distorting self-view;

When the mirror’s had its fun,

You no longer look like you.
