cease the fight (tanka)

speak the truth
starts with the first step
sets you free
cease the fight, honour wins
stand tall – wind at your back

      1. The first primaries are going to be Feb 1 and Feb 9. Those will be very important and telling. Everything is really heating up.


  1. I love the poem. The imagery and words are so powerful. If you have honor, tell the truth, and stop the fight the wind will be at your back and propel you forward. So true.

  2. You know you have done the right thing when you speak the truth. A nice turnaround from the shadorma to the tanka. A good exercise in experimentation and expression. Love both poems. – jk
