tanka

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

Advent calendars

decades
of advent calendars
my mother sent,
each marked with its year . . .
so many doors left open

    Yes, and occasionally a few left closed?

  2. Thanks, Janet! Yes, some doors are left closed--as you know, sometimes that's best!
