Tanka by Mary Kendall

What a delight to have two tanka appear on Miriam’s Well today. What an honor. Thank you, Miriam Sagan.

Miriam's Well: Poetry, Land Art, and Beyond

who am I
to judge you
without knowing
why you built
your fence?


words grow muted
and hearing diminished โ€“
I begin to tiptoe
along the lonely curve
of inner silence

This tanka first appeared in Ekphrastic, a Journal of Writing and Art about Art and Writing, 9/2/16
