tanka

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

All Souls



change your clocks
change your batteries—
how much longer
until I fall back
into that good night

~A Hundred Gourds 3:2, March 2014



All Souls’ Day—
against scudding clouds
a raven
rides the wind
from another world

~GUSTS 19: spring/summer 2014



the last few seeds 
on the dandelion clock
letting go
I set my watch 
to the next season

  1. These go so well together. Great! I love them all, but I think the first is my favorite.
