this brief life
soon eclipsed

a soft rain falls
as you work in the garden …
what I’d give to read
the chapters of your life
you never share

peeling an orange

in one long strand –

trying hard to hold on

to all I remember

of those now gone

 

 

 

a wooden pew

empty and waiting . . .

colored light

from stained glass

cupped in my hands

 

My thanks to editor and poet, Marilyn Hazelton, who published these tanka in the most excellent Red Lights.
