Change – A Tanka

on the face of it

change sneaks around the corner

taking hold like vines

surging for the summer sun –

securing it’s space in time

A Sliver of Light

unlikely voices sharing
balls up off the floor, somewhat
are we on the verge
of getting the emperor clothed!
a sliver of light

on calm waters of the bay
elegant splish splash

this venomous pen
tweets with the bite of the asp –
