tanka

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

autumn fruits


twin fawns
browsing the orchard
for early apples . . .
how little we knew
of autumn rain

~Fire Pearls 2 Anthology, summer 2013



wild persimmons
not yet sweetened 
by frost
I paint the long days
with a tincture of hope

  2. I thought I'd commented earlier, but the comments apparently didn't "take."

    Anyway, I love these delicate, layered, relatable tanka.
