Middle School tanka

The clock stopped ticking
Does that mean it never did?
the photos are gone
Are the memories gone too?
The past cannot float away.
    -Arahi Fletcher

Shattered photo frame,
Two children in the photo.
So where are they now?
Did they live, or did they die?
Did they ever say goodbye...
    -Hana Jacobsen

The mass destruction
I hear about in Tankas
To all the victims
I write in sorrow for you
I pray you can rest in peace.   
    -Fayaz Majid

Shatters of terror,
calm seas with no beginning.
Lonely pine houses.
Radiation left behind.
Life’s memories washed away.
    -Kien Malarney
