This was quite touching. You did a great job.


Now I want to write a tanka.

Thanks, guys. Like I said, that image of Jack's mother really got to me one night, and when I first tried writing a poem about her, I just babbled on and on and it was pretty bad. (Probably something like what maggiemert was talking about!) I finally decided that instead of free-verse (I had some versions that rhymed and some that didn't), I'd have to use some kind of poem that followed a specific pattern. I went for a tanka simply because it's Japanese. I was quite pleased that it worked out and I'm glad y'all enjoyed it.

It is a sad, but very beautiful tanka.

That is really quite lovely...quiet, elegant and well, delightfully free of the rather unpleasant, failed epic sort of tone that haunts most "fan poetry." Nice.

Aww, how sad. Poor woman will never see her son again. Keep writing, Jill. Just

because I'm gone from the board doesn't mean I'll stop Reading and

Aww . . . The last time I saw the movie, I noticed how she has his eyes. ^-^
