Original Tanka Poems by Walterrean Salley
Soon those golden bells© 2015 Walterrean Salley
Pure and bright, once again shall
Peal in the joyful
Hearts of kind folks everywhere,
Signaling… Christmas is near.
Kids do stay safe this© 2015 Walterrean Salley
Halloween. The times are not
As they once were, when
Children could have innocent
Fun. The world has grown darker.
Falling. Falling down.© 2015 Walterrean Salley
Winnowing to the ground. The
Heaps and piles of leaves
Once all spry and full of life.
Now dried, withered, rustling leaves
In troubles, faith seems(c) Walterrean Salley
To grow deeper, as one is
Compelled by that which
Is seen to rely upon
That which is not seen for strength.
Outside my bedroom(c) Walterrean Salley
Window a little sparrow
Sings her morning song.
Reminds me of the cock that
Crows. But the sparrow, she sings.
