tanka

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

in spring rain

the heartbeat
under my heartbeat
stops—
a rip in the membrane
between worlds

~Fire Pearls 2 Anthology, summer 2013

rebuked
for writing a poem
about her miscarriage 
     in spring rain 
     she cleans the bluebird boxes

  1. "heartbeat under…heartbeat" is so fascinating and thought-provoking.

    and "rebuked" is one of my very favorite tanka of yours, though, granted, the subject matter is so sad.
