The Monodrama. (Tanka)

Sombre seas, the stage;

mournful clouds, the audience;

stern sun, the spotlight—

he oars through his pool of tears,

with none to ease his burdens.

  1. First, I’m in awe of the photo. Such a striking image – a dream to catch! (Is it yours?) (Kudos to whoever captured this.)
    Then the poem – (sigh . . .) – it’s beautiful, it resonates.
    And the two together! Dreamy and inspiring. I’m just drinking them in and feeling nurtured in doing so.
    Thank you!

    • I should thank you more.

      I came across the photo on Pixabay while scrolling through one gloomy day (It’s indeed beautiful), then suddenly, I felt inspired to write the poem.

      Thanks again for your spurring remarks.
