Saudade (Tanka) - Poem by C.D. Sinex

Cherries in full bloom.
Petals falling one by one.
No time to wither.
Feelings have flittered away.
Your empty chair reminds me.

    I was really interest in reading your poem when I saw its title, and I must say I am not a least bit disappointed.

    You captured the 'saudade' to near perfection and the choice of your poetic form being a tanka is all the more appropriate.

    Beautifully written, thank you for sharing...
