(tanka syllable count 5-7-5-7-7-) A Brief Time

Even though the time

yesterdays treasures to hold

your memory will not fade.

    A short and sweet write Heather. Time well spent is
    better than time in years spent. Memories will linger on.

    The quality of time together is more important than the duration. Nicely expressed.

    A beautiful tanka, even for a few seconds, briefest of time
    it can never be forgotten and it will always leave a lasting
    memory to someone so in love. A very lovely poem.

    The moments are as brief as your felled rose petal at the gate.
    The treasures are harbored in a vault of love
    That one day are dreams of fate
    Though the time was never a second best
    Hold tightly onto to your love
    Like the time it treasured blest.
