tanka

tanka--
small songs I sing
to join
my voice to other voices
hidden in the grass

[a fish . . .]

a fish
flips itself
out of the water
for the space of a breath
I see what it is to be you

  1. This is such an interesting, effective little poem, and I like how it gradually builds, from short to longer lines. I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to here.

  2. Lovely, Jenny . . . I've also been meaning to congratulate you on your placing in the TSA contest. I thought your tanka was extremely moving. Best, M.
