tanka

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

with cold lips

frost flowers
melting on the windowpane—
my breath
a passageway
among the stars

~Ribbons 11:1, winter 2015


nine red birds
in a swirl of snow. . .
have they flown
from some fairy tale
yet to be written?

~red lights 11:2, June 2015


with cold lips
she tastes the snow
on frozen pomegranates—
Persephone dreaming
of meadowsweet and rue
