Não é segredo -

eu sou uma pobre alma perdida
já faz algum tempo

vagando por esse mundo
de pobres almas perdidas
e corações partidos.


It is no secret -

a poor lost soul I've been
for quite long now

wandering in this world of
poor lost souls.

(My attempt to write a tanka to One Stop Poetry Form Monday)

  1. A poor lost soul in a world of lost souls should have no problem finding a companion.

    Take care, dear Kenia.

  2. That's what everybody believes, my dear Andreas. I'm puzzled, in a world of lost souls, everybody looking for love and a half, just a few find it. Lucky them, I say.

    (you got the mood of the poem. It's all about hope, because in a world of lost souls I'll find a match anytime, and also, it's better to be a lost soul than a broken heart.)


    Kisses!

  3. I'm another lost soul honey!! Loved the nature of the poetry, loss but optimism, tanka is like a haiku or a senryu you count the syllables. I'm not an expert but I think I like them! This is perfection :) thankyou Kenia x

  4. It's a lovely poem, reminds me a bit of Saigyo, and that ain't bad!

  8. Sem cerol, sem sangue, sem degolados.
    Poesia perfeita para dia dos namorados.

    Ou, em versão menos moribunda:

    Conservou sua melancolia-depressiva-excessivamente-existencialista sobre o que toca o amor...

    (Eu levantei o humor, nada, mas nada de cult breguinha).
