Three of my senryu were published in the newest issue of Prune Juice. It is always an honor to be included in this excellent publication and among such fine poets. My thanks to editor and poet, Steve Hodge for including my work.

proprioception lost in his own world



Trying hard to hold on … (two tanka)

peeling an orange

in one long strand –

trying hard to hold on

to all I remember

of those now gone




a wooden pew

empty and waiting . . .

colored light

from stained glass

cupped in my hands


My thanks to editor and poet, Marilyn Hazelton, who published these tanka in the most excellent Red Lights.
