With age – I find it
Harder just to be happy
About things in life –
Ebulient or nothing!
Can’t seem to stop at happy

Notes to this poem…
It’s true. When I get happy about things these days, I get really happy! Some call it excitability. I think I just appreciate life more.
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.
