innocence . ..

 


This tanka is dedicated it to all who have dealt with the trauma
of childhood sexual abuse.

 

 

 

he believed

himself omnipotent…

the innocence

of so many children

dissolved in a moment

It’s a great honor to have had this tanka published in Eucalypt. My thanks to editor, Julie Anne Thorndyke for selecting this particular poem.
