Murmur – A Quadrille

Seeking tranquility, time out from the hustle
Afternoon respite inside the cathedral
Flames of lit candles flicker to whispered prayers
Through the murmur came a small voice
“Dear God, please look after grandpa”
A prayer and a plea reverberates through the cool, dim stillness

Tanka – Bells & Past

tiny bells jingle
with each ornament placement –
children’s eyes widen

santa must be near, grandpa
hides a smile, old hijinks on
