tanka

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

[suspended . . .]

suspended 
on unseen silk
a spider
touches the Tao Te Ching
mother of ten thousand things

  1. Not just any poet can connect the Tao Te Ching to a spider! I like your careful choice of wording, such as "unseen silk."

  2. Thanks, Janet! Really, the spider connected itself by descending onto the book I was reading.
