Paper and dolls…(tanka)

IMG_0057

Two tanka of mine appeared in the last issue of Ribbons, the journal of the Tanka Society of America.

 

Ribbons, Fall 2017: Volume 13, Number 3

 

still collecting dolls
into her old age
a special name for each –
and one story
she refused to tell

 

Tanka Café, Fall 2017: theme was “paper”

 

a book propped
by the pillow on my knees,
page after page
I ease into someone
else’s life
