another year – – tanka

another year

another decade behind

what is to come

the sun will rise once more

we will eat…play…love

Haikai Challenge #119 – – new year. This is my wish for everyone in the new year—to have the privilege of food, and safety to play and love. The last line of the tanka borrows from the title of a book and movie by Elizabeth Gilbert.
