    Truely envisioned. Ego is vainglory and we should be away from this. It is a marvellous tanka I like most.. Thanks for sharing. ....10 (Report) Reply

    Because I loved this poem so much, I had to write a poem inspired by a few of my thoughts on the verse, a topic and images which always intrigues me. Many of Mihaela's poems inspire me to write or simply enjoy and for this I thank you :)

    Soul Lifelong Lesson Transformations

    Man's soul
    is a lifelong
    lesson learning

    carrying us
    through transformation
    of flesh

    carrying us
    through transformation
    of feelings

    emotions
    mind stirring
    evolutions
