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

[the weeping cherry . . .]

       
                    the weeping cherry
                    blooms in spring sleet—
                    with cold hands
                    I take a cutting,
                    root it in my veins

  2. Thanks, Janet! Yes, the weeping cherry is in our Zen garden. You can see another view of it in my profile picture on this blog.
