Notes from other lives… (two tanka)

 

Gusts, no. 27, Contemporary Tanka, spring/summer 2018  (two tanka)

 

 

heart fluttering

and eyes closed tight –

it was as if you knew

the swallows had flown

away again

 

Ekphrastic 2 Swallows

 

shipwreck spoils

wash back and forth

upon the tide –

notes from other lives

left in sea glass shards
