  1. YOU did it, Billy! Well done, and a lovely Tanka too. I love how you slip in the old poetic touches such as “doth.” Splendid. ❤

    1. Only occasionally, Robbie. I’m trying to finish my 15th book, and Social Media, as you surely know, takes so much time…it’s fun but very time-consuming! AND, I like compressing thoughts into short poems… Tanka, I had not tried, but Haiku is my favorite! You do very well, dear Lady! Sending you my best wishes… ♥
