tanka

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

openings

behind bars
of sunlight and shadow
tendrils twine
in a wallpaper prison
my blinds snap open


~The Bamboo Hut 1:2, Jan. 2014


this silver river
flowing underground
at three a.m.
a trapdoor opens
in the cellar of myself
