I love the long story told in a succint poem. The word 'age' evokes a long period of time, past, present and future, 'crawling' brings us to the present and 'afterlife' takes us onto some mystical future, then 'younger' flashes back to the past again! Excellent, so much can be read into it!
I second Beatrice. It's a great tanka!Alan, With Words
