Today’s challenge over at Mindlovemisery Menagerie is to write a haiku and/or tanka about emotion. I chose to try both styles. The first is a haiku and the second is the beautiful tanka.

Which will you choose? 🙂

 

Childhood torment
Shame as tears escape floodgate
Raw, unpeeled stigma

 

Before night sleeps and
Day stirs, I sit in silence
My cab glimmers anew
“This American Life” on
Cut short by first passenger
