Haiku & Tanka

dreams swirl

in a snow globe on the desk…

for a while

I am a child again

and you are shoveling the drive




the tea picker’s song

in my cup


country graveyard

a hummingbird

she would’ve loved


were all the cranes

to forsake the temple,

would the shadow

of something you said

still dwell in me?
