Tanka #7

Here’s to my first micro poem of 2017… I’ve really missed doing these. It helps me when I have too many words and I just want to be direct with my thoughts and not ramble on …

On days when the silence is deafening, music becomes my companion. In this post (and possibly subsequent ones to come), I’ll share music that inspires me when my thoughts go astray…

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”

– Victor Hugo

If you’re familiar with my tanka series, you’ll know I like when you reply to my tanka in the comments section 🙂

The constant battle
To be free or be happy?
Two paths disjointed
I choose neither; I choose me
A new start, and my own path

*Today’s tanka is inspired by this daily prompt.
