And yet another dream poem ~

dream time –
chasing blossom
after blossom

My thanks to Laura Adai for this beautiful photograph of drifting blossoms.

 

Still the roses bloom…(a tanka)

 

.

 

the chiming clock
begins to wind down . . .
five months of quarantine
yet still the roses bloom
and red birds sing

This tanka was published in October, but obviously was written in early summer. We are now nine months into this pandemic. Writing is a wonderful relief as we isolate ourselves. Like so many poets, I find my writing has been changed by the pandemic.

Tanka No. 2: pale pink petals

Here’s the second tanka published in
Gusts no. 32, Fall/Winter 2020

 

 

pale pink petals
scattered on the desk
one by one the days
of isolation pass,
each fading to nothing
