Lotus, a Tanka Poem #poetry


I’ll be the lotus.

Rising up, grown from the mire,

In a world of barbs.

Instead of twisted  anger,

I shall choose the face of peace.

I am a writer who also teaches reading and writing, currently. In the past year, I self-published an e-book and its sequel, and I am learning the art of self-promotion. I am also planning to get a full-length novel in e-book and print in the summer of 2017. Life is a trip, and writing is the best escape for me!
