Tanka T052

Some folks resort to
Violence to quell anger –
Some to drugs or drink –
I resort to poetry –
But not on all occasions

Notes to this poem…

My recent spike in poetic output was initially spurred on by something someone did that left me angry. Momentum once I got going then changed motivation to challenge their actions to outright flaunting to them for trying to subdue the indomitable spirit. 🙂

Poetry writing is an outlet I LOVE having in my life, but I’m also human where I resort to other means to quell my anger. I just and won’t ever do drugs or drink for it, though, not currently or ever having done either aside from a few sips of wine or beer some special moments where drinking Coke or juice didn’t really feel right. 🙂

The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
