Three Tankas – POEM #27 NATIONAL POETRY MONTH 2019

I am attempting some Tanka (a form of Japanese Poetry).. Please excuse any errors…

On a white Beach
under the blue sky
in a red jacket
I see her walking
she loves me

On a busy street
in a speeding car
while eating popcorn
I get a glimpse of her
She is crying

On the top of a building
sitting on the side
with feet hanging
She tells me the truth
I am about to Jump
