Tanka Poems

a poem by Christuraj Alex

Divine Decree

When crops are graces
Can weeds claim to be the same
Both have their places
In the book of God whose aim
Is change not shame or bad name

Legs in mud; head floats;
Oriented toward Light;
Throbbing with delight;
Undaunted by floods and droughts;
Symbol of enlightenment.
