tanka

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

two late-summer tanka


the ratcheting
of katydids’ did or didn’t
did or didn’t . . .
all night your words
rasping in my mind


rambling
a hundred yards to climb
the fence—
morning glory vines
so sure of what they seek
