Tanka T155

You don’t get used to
Near death experiences –
You have to savour –
Each one as if it might be
Your last as it just might be!

Notes to this poem…

I’ve had a couple of near death experiences in my life. This is my perspective on them. That along with a quote I wrote about how a near death experience every now and then is a good thing… for what it smacks you with about life perspective and self-evaluation.

The T-series poems 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.
