A Few Tanka

Here are a few Tanka from my collection, Somewhere, Love.

winter hike
together we make tracks
snow angels
protect the fossil
of today’s memory

windshield wipers
glide across a glass dancefloor
erasing snow
the morning sun peeks-a-boo
brushing dust from cornfields

little sparrow
sitting atop budded tree
which composer
filled your tiny lungs
with such expressive tunes

after the rain
when vapor drifts skyward
a sun beam
glistens from behind your eyes
a kind embrace, reconciled
