tanka

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

[a passport . . .]

a passport
stamped long ago with characters
I cannot read
the mute Pacific ocean
of your gaze

  1. Hi, Jenny. I've read this one in Ribbons and have admired it a great deal. Wonderful jux, pivot, textures, and layers. Passports can take us many places...but not everywhere...They can't unlock that gaze! ...janet
