The Whirlpool – A Tanka

Photo taken last evening

swift visit –
huge swirl of leaves
autumn gusts

all shapes and colors trapped in
the whirlpool, stark limbs shaken

Coconut Drops

As the coconuts roll around in the cart
Their shells clunking together took me back to younger days

The smell of coconut boiling with brown sugar and ginger is everywhere
For the whole day it seems
In the end, a crunchy treat from childhood
