I've never heard of Tanka before! How clever.
It's lovely poetry, both sad and true. Poor M.

thank you! I had heard of the form but never tried to write one before. I'm glad this worked for you.

Very clever - once again I'm impressed.

And congratulations on all the fan_flashworks badges you have earned this time. *iz envious* *redoubles efforts to catch up with number of badges fengirl has*

Also, we shall be having a poetry page every week for the Sherlock 60for60 comm - the Tanka looks like a form that could work very well, I hope you don't mind if we include it. Or possibly persuade you to come over and contribute one every so often?

thank you, on both counts! *beams*

and of course I don't mind if you include the Tanka in the 60for60 poetry page - the more the merrier.
