Unwanted touch …


Presence Issue 61 (2018) / three haiku and one tanka:



a shadow blocks the light    unwanted touch



washed up –
this broken shell
once sang the sea


far above
old cotton fields –
migrating swans


thin curls of wood
fly away
from the lathe –
his memory slips 
away bit by bit
