Inspired Tanka’s

 A Tanka Anthology

by

Mick Talbot


Fear
War hate and terror
Untimely deaths like murder
Life ending in pain
Fatal accidents suicides
Fearing fear paranoia

Fear
Fear of a lost love
Happens to anyone ere
The time or what cost
Terrible pain confronted
Yet life goes on undaunted

Sacred
Sacred thoughts many
Does each wary soul conceal
Exposed to but one
Their loves they will tell no lies
Their sacred thoughts realised

Why
Why why why why why
Love why hate why warring why
Questions no answers
Ad infinitum oh yes
Resolution none not yet

Love
True love is a lie
Do ask why all this crying
Are you denying
Your reply must be all truth
True openhearted forsooth

Hate
Hate defiles true love
Discriminates destroys hearts
Impersonates good
And sustains all the evil
Change it let true love prevail

Bond
Bond its natures way
To procreate sustain life
As husband and wife
As some species also bond
Natures forever’s ere gender

Goodwill
Goodwill nearly here
As is its one day only
Why not forever
Lonely poor and rich too
Let goodwill love prevail in all

Heart
Take heart all is well
Heartfelt wishes my dear friend
Love hearts not real
Sweetness a taste not truelove
A good heart will come lets pray

Transparent
Transparent love swoon
You would ere you could so see
My heart beating out
A warmth, a transparent love
No doubts all my thoughts revealed

Words
Words convey feelings
Black and white not at all true
For there are some words
Of greyish hues different
Maybe find you me a friend

Life
If there is a God
For me life it has forgot
Women children more
All slaughtered in Holy wars
God please do not condone

Life
Life in natures style
Evolution the default
Extant life threatened
Nature life it can resolve
Without humans problem solved

Tanka
My Tanka’s I choose
Though the styles are many fold
Controversial some
Their styles can be confusing
Though mine are all from my heart

Aileen
A sweet girl I met
Along time ago back when
Time dictated all
Life was short so lets play ball
We did reception went well

Trust
Love misunderstood
Reasons some are right some wrong
Loves key compromise
Share all of your doubts your loves
Trust is the key to true love

Friends
Not many a few
Travelled everyday some new
Faces non I knew
Acquaintances aplenty
I so preferred it that way

Peace
Lets give peace a chance
Without it not a future
Its a point of view
Understand just lust for peace
No wars just tranquillity

Anon
Anon, anon please
Do wait and I shall you grace
Your place dear or mine
Anon it will sure happen
The time came now were both spent

Innuendo
Innuendo hint
Is what counts influences
How perceived by all
A sexual suggestion
Maybe intimidation

Jealousy
A kind of envy
Of perceived advantages
Of cheating partners
Of suspected cheating love
Ending with a broken heart

Broken
Tis of our sweet love
I cry broken tell me why
What do you so need
If I have hurt you how when
Broken heart now broken pen

Joy
Now sat in awe joy
Flowed cascading to paper
Words full of a need
To explore new found treasure
Writing Tanka new pleasures
