The faded notes … (two tanka)

 

Ephemerae, a new journal of hakai, Volume 1A, April 2018 has just been published in the U.K. I am honored to have two tanka included in this first edition. Edited by Shrikaanth K. Murthy, there are over 160 fine poets included from around the world.

 

 

 

returning again

to the faded notes

scribbled in margins

I search for traces

of who you really were

 

          …

 

reflected

in a bookshop window

sun glinting behind

your image imposed

over mine
