Back or Forward? #tanka

Good.

Trent's World (the Blog)

Cold steel to green wood
Traveling to a far land
Is it time or place?
Does the green exist behind
Or undiscovered country?

This was written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge.  This week was a photo challenge.  Aishwarya, aka, Kitty from Kitty’s verses provided the photo at the top (not sure if it was Kitty’s or found, but I claim no rights).  I chose a tanka for this week’s poem.

The Undiscovered Country is not just Star Trek, it is Shakespeare and means “the after life”, though some take it for the future.  You can interpret it either way 😉  Not saying how I meant it 😉
