tanka

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

[poppies]


summer dusk
touching the poppies’
red silk throats . . .
what need have I
            of opium?

Notes from the Gean 14, Dec. 2012

  1. with your skillfully constructed poem and your striking photo, I find myself touching a red silk throat. (I don't need opium either.) great job.
