Dverse – form for all

Still struggling with the problem of whether an ‘ed’ ending to a verb constitutes a syllable, I have attempted a Somon  in tanka form for the Dverse form for all.

I suspect it is neither a tanka relying as it does on enjambment for meaning, nor in the tradition of Somon – though, oddly for me, it almost addresses the concept of love…well offers a sideways glance at it !

Lined face, life’s map
of years lived, shared, fought
still comes to my dreams.
Smoulders, wraps, smiles, loves.
I wake, duvet wrapped, here – still.
