tanka

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

silver moon fish and a runnel of starlight

silver moon fish
dancing on the pond’s
dark eye—
this need to shift my gaze
when the wind is up


A Hundred Gourds 2:3, June 2013


after seasons
of searching the world
for the axis mundi—
this runnel of starlight
down my spine
