tanka 10

in happy endings
song and dance – I take refuge
from unending pain
in worlds of vivid colour
I find escape from my life
I wrote this tanka while I was recovering from open surgery last year…

    I hope you recovered well and I enjoyed the lovely references to dance and song with rich colours, too 🙂

    🙂 I’ll keep in mind when I next find myself in pain.


    • it really does help! and reading Patrick O’Brian books helps as well – you have to concentrate so hard on his writing that you forgot (momentarily) about the pain, even if you are on morphine-based painkillers1
