waking
from a dream of flying
I wonder
what I might have left
behind upon the earth

I felt a tinge of Wim Wenders and of "Wings of Desire", one of my favourite films. I could even bear the Nicholas Cage version that Wim Wenders made.

Lovely tanka.

I had never encountered this film so went to look up what it was about. Sounds remarkable, and quite appropriate to this tanka. I will have to get hold of a copy.

Please do, both the German original, and then Nicholas Cage.

I'm still waiting for a book to be published of your haiku, tanka, and other poems, you have a confirmed sale with me!
