The Burning Barns of Our Times: A Tanka

Fire, Explosion, Danger, Hot, Flame

Night of our times brings
Ablaze the greed of a few
Others give of self
A Majority – Cloistered 
Together bring healing – hope

Written for dVerse Poetics in response to Mizuta Masahide’s poem: “Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon.”
