tanka

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

echoes

a ribbon of birds
across the winter sky
the echo 
of earthbound magic
in those hollow bones


~GUSTS 19: spring/summer 2014




slow down 
slow down the song 
of the wood thrush
until at last it echoes 
the music of humpbacked whales

  1. We are reminded through your poetry, as always, of your strong connection with the songs of birds and the "natural world" in general. Beautiful work.
