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

words and an acorn



searching for words
in these sunlit badlands
I dance
on the razorback ridge
between truth and magic

~A Hundred Gourds 2:4, Sept. 2013


a tiny hole
straight to the heart
of the acorn 
you hand me
the poem inside it

  1. I love the line: I dance on the razorback ridge
    between truth and magic . . . Beautiful!

  2. I agree about "razorback ridge": stunning, effective imagery. And I've always considered your second poem here to be a gem. You've found a good many poems inside you.
