echo of footsteps
in lamplight’s lonely shadows
leads the foot-weary
through cold, late-night city streets
in the direction of home

My response to Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #17 loneliness

In this Tanka Splendor episode, the prompt is loneliness and Chèvrefeuille has shared a tanka and a haiku on this topic.

all alone
after the quarrel with her
I sit down
trying to forget her
with a bottle of scotch

through the city park near by
just the wind and me
