According to Wikipedia, Tanka (短歌, “short poem”?) is a genre of classical Japanese poetry and one of the major genres of Japanese literature.  Below you can read the second of my 2017 poems.

I find this quite embarrassing as I am not sure weather my efforts are any good, but these poems are constructed from the heart and fuelled by the frustration I feel due to living with a disability in modern society.

In the modern world

Technology knows no bounds

Cyber whirs and bleeps

The world at our fingertips

Loneliness consumes us all

Thanks to Ted Eames for his constructive comments about my first effort which gives me the confidence to continue.
