Luna moth . . . (haiku)

 

Luna moth
this brief life
soon eclipsed

A sudden glint … (tanka)

 

staring skyward
at the meteor shower
I brush away two fireflies–
a sudden glint
of new found love

Tundra swans . . . (a tanka)

A new tanka just published in Skylark, Summer 2017, Volume 5, Issue 1

 

 

whistling wings    
of Tundra swans
over the marshes
. . . what is this power
you hold over me
