A different kind of love poem … (a tanka)

It has always surprised me that the few love poems I’ve posted on my blog have the most “hits.”  Word Press very kindly shows statistics of which postings are most frequently read and invariably the love poems are always at the top. This makes me smile since mine are not traditional love poems but simply poems for my dear husband who has been the most important person in my adult life.

My thanks to Claire Everett for including this tanka in Skylark. It is always a great honor to be part of this brilliant journal.
