    You didn't need my vote for your winning Tanka poem. But, I did have the opportunity to review the same. Congrats on this Tanka entry.

    Barry James: Thank you Melissa, I appreciate your review. I loved Reflected Shadows, it's powerful. It is so sad that we have so much sadness in the world, especially when viewed in the eyes of a child.
