Carpe Diem special #133 Fuyuko Tomika’s “lonely”
painting-of-woman-writing

an unfinished poem
a list of words and phrases
torn from a journal
words left unstrung
memories tattered and fading

The following poem was our prompt for today.  I had just before this found an old list of words and phrases for a poem from 2007 and posted my first poetry challenge.  I think it is very fitting based on this poem.  If you want to enter check out “Just for Fun Poetry Challenge”

さんさんとそそぐ朝日の文机に遺す未完の歌ぞ淋しき


Sansan to/ sosogu asahi no/fuzukue ni/ nokosu mikan no/ uta zo samishiki

How lonely I would be
left behind on my desk
an unfinished poem
in the glorious morning sun
