shattered windowpane
curtains moving in the frame
-runner leaves his base

frozen moment’s decision
of what will finish this play

  1. Are you a baseball lover? I had to read your Tanka a couple of times and then it hit me! You wrote the perfect baseball smashed window episode, ever! 😀 Well done.

    • I remembered a time when I was young playing baseball in our neighbors yard. We hit the ball through his window. I remember time stopped when it happened, then an explosion of kids running away. Course the people knew all of us, so we had to come back to face justice.
