and now the other—thus it falls,
an autumn leaf

a final playful tumble

Tan Renga-First Autumn Morning

first autumn morning
the mirror I stare into
shows my father’s face

a clear reflection of words
not spoken, and time misspent

Clouds & Spring

#Tanka Tuesday

 

20160501_155252 heart peony

rain clouds all day, a
gray haze blankets springs newness
pelting rain drops plop
so we wait, the birds and I
listening to sound of spring
