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

Happy New Year


cleaning the fridge—
among cake crumbs
and wine stains
the unknowable
detritus of our lives

two cats
unimpressed
by the peacock’s display—
I scratch out every line
that I just wrote

Wishing you bright new beginnings in the new year!
