tanka

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

hummingbirds and a monarch's wing


hummingbirds
suspended in mid-air
above the buddleia
all the questions
I’ve never asked

Atlas Poetica 14, March 2013



in my pocket
the monarch’s wing
I’ve saved
against the day
I’m ready to migrate
