(from my window)

from my window
at dawn the traffic light
blinking red
you are on your way and
nothing I say can stop you

.

von meinem Fenster
am Abend die Ampel
blinkt rot
du bist auf dem Weg und
keins meiner Worte hält dich mehr auf

    Wow, Melissa! A perfect tanka for me. I love the simplicity of it, the sadness yet the feeling of being released. I like how you paired ‘the red light’ with the last line. Thanks for sharing it!
