Quan Yin Poem (tanka)

Goddess, Be with Me

Quan Yin be with me
I walk with you in beauty
You hold my heart near
Then we sit under moonbeams
No more tears and no more fear~


Tanka is Japanese poetry that dates back 1200 years. It is penned 5/7/5 (like Haiku) with two more lines added at 7/7 syllables. It is usually written about nature, seasons, love, and other strong emotions.
