Love Poems: After Forty Years (more tanka this week and a haiga, too)

In my last posting, I mentioned that this was a week of poems being published. Last time it was two tanka in Ribbons, this time it is two other tanka…and one haiga in a very beautiful and favorite journal of mine: hedgerow: a journal of small poems. Editor Caroline Skanne produces this publication weekly (it goes out on Friday afternoon, a highlight of the week for so many of us). This issue is #55. I’ll provide a link to the journal at the end of this posting so you can go and read all the other wonderful poems and visit mine. I’m so proud to be included with so many excellent poets.

My two tanka here are love poems. My husband and I were married in 1978, but we’ve been together for forty years. Where does the time go?

After Forty Years

you take my hand
when we walk together…
the last leaves
nearly
gone

.

a single glance
from your grey eyes
shifts
my world—
the earthquake of you

.

The haiga published in hedgerow #55 originally appeared in this blog. I am thrilled to have it officially published in an edited journal of this caliber.  Here it is.

I hope you all enjoy these poems. If you have a favorite, let me know.

When you have time, please visit the journal these were published in:

    • I’d say that 98% of the comments I got on FaceBook and privately agreed with you, lol. I’m delighted to know others connect with these love poems. Thanks, as always, for taking time to leave me a comment. It really makes it all worthwhile, Suzanne. ❤
