Amidst winter's grip
First meeting of skin and sheet
Braces the body
Mid-slumber's intermission
Seeks cool side of the pillow

    Through your verses come into existence moments neglected or ignored.Now I realize that it was the poesy which made us humans as not only in front of us to see water, food, enemies against to fight. (Report) Reply

    I enjoy looking at the moments of life that seldom get put into verse

    I used to have the same issue until I switched to a water pillow. I like the sound of the line, Mid-slumber's intermission/ seeks cool side of the pillow' It has a nice ring to it. (Report) Reply

    A water pillow sounds interesting. I wake up multiple times throughout the night and flip my pillow

    Mid-slumber's intermission seeking cool side of pillow is very amazingly humorous and expressive in this Tanka shared. Fantastic poem drafted and sheared really.10 (Report) Reply

    The bed is initially cold against my body when first climbing in. After a few hours, no matter how cold my room is, the pillow warms up and needs to be flipped to the cool side. Maybe it's just me. : -)
