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

[a jar of mustard seed. . . ] and [five percent . . .]


a jar of mustard seed
given me as talisman
of faith . . .
forty years on the shelf
and savorless as dust

A Hundred Gourds 2:2, March 2013


five percent
all we can see
of the cosmos . . .
I release into the unknown
this wraith of prayer

The Bamboo Hut 1: 1, August 2013

  1. Both are unique and effectively expressed, and how well they work with each other - the tiny mustard seed and the five percent.
