collecting stones
from the river
where I was baptized
washes over me

    Just lovely! What a smooth turn from L3 through L5. Great tanka Aubrie.

    Very nice indeed. I find myself identifying with this poem, and on more than one level. And also, I had thought Tinywords had folded and am glad to see it is alive.

    many levels to this beautiful little poem;

    much love
