A #tanka for A Month With Yeats…of bloodied tides and lost innocence…#poetry

‘The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;’

first blood

she whispers in the dark

“Are you inside?”

shards of a shattered culture

Strewn in the wake of my “yes”

For Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats–Day 8
