Code Talkers





a system

a language

a nation


a notion

of devotion

in the heart

or the head


when a Rose





 the following is for NaPoWriMo, day 11.

A tanka, I converted from  Code Talkers:


a system, language, nation;

devotion notion,

from the heart; or in the head,

when a Rose arose, instead.


this Tanka poem is about WWII and the Navajo involvement.
