tanka

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

[my cat . . .]

RIP Tara        2/10/2005--7/25/2014















my cat 
watches the water run, 
unruffled
by the endless flow . . .
how tight I wind my cuckoo clock

  1. A wonderful tanka and photo.
    I like your contrast: calm vs tightly wound.

  2. Tara was beautiful Jenny. We don't have the exact date that our Padre Pio was born but it was approximately 3/15/2005 and he died on 8/9/2014. How coincidental that they had almost the same life spans.
