Carpe Diem Special *Fuyuko Tomita’s “actors we all are, she said”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a tanka, written by a well-known haiku poetess Fuyuko Tomita:

* * *
Actors we all are, she said
mirrors to reflect
each other
We all leave the stage, she said
and left a smile in mine

* * *

Here’ s my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
piercing silence
among shards of broken plates
the same drama
played all over again
for the last time

* * *
