tanka

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

shafts of sun


raising the blinds
I let your words
pass through me—
sunlight streaming
through an empty glass

~Fire Pearls 2, summer 2013

I wake 
to find myself
invisible—
dust motes shimmer
in a shaft of sun

  1. Great, Jenny! I often wake up invisible myself.

    P.S. I added a comment - or thought I had - to your sequence post from the other day. Anyway, I think that's my favorite sequence of yours! All the tanka are wonderful; my very favorites are the first and the last.
