tanka

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

[the book of wildflowers. . . ]



the book
of wildflowers
my mother bound—
among the brittle leaves
these four-leaf clovers

  1. What a nice tribute tanka on this Mother's Day. Love the sounds and the metaphorical power of your last 2 lines.
