Three Tanka About Children

image

A child sits in
Abbreviated wonder,
Learning about worlds.
Finding the hidden function,
Seeking the worldly answers.

A child sits in
Antagonistic patience
Waiting for freedom.
Imaginative frenzy,
Young minds breathe fire, spit worlds.

image

A child sits in
Anticipated silence,
Information comes.
Wonder is the lesson that
A child can teach the world.
