Curtains billowing . . .

It’s a real honor to have three tanka and one haiku published in a favorite journal of mine, Blithe Spirit. My thanks to editor Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy for his support and encouragement.

curtains billowing

in the warm spring air

each strand of lace

intricate, undecipherable

… like you

 

 

an early daffodil

frozen in a bed of snow

you left us

long before

we were ready

 

 

spooning dumplings

into chicken soup

I imagine my mother –

how I wish we had

another chance

 

 

milkweed pods

               fading to nothing

              as we age
