tanka

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

[at the edge of a deep wood . . .]

at the edge
of a deep wood
an old couple
waltzing without music . . .
leaves spiral to earth

[turkey]

my Thanksgiving
turkey carcass
feeding the vultures—
a blue holiday mood
lifts on outstretched wings

[three deer . . .]

three deer
bedded down in the meadow
rising early
to browse the frozen stubble
I hunt for poems
