Water spider tanka

a water spider
gently moving on still water
lets the ripples fade
before reaching the shore
where we used to be

Good time tanka

en route
tiny flowers in my garden
cheerfully glimpse
longing for good times
I used to share with you

Reason to leave tanka

too short to remember
so why bother
asking again and again
for another reason to leave?

Flight home tanka

all stuff packed
ready for a flight home
by the gate
I glance at the fences
that keep my poems

Morning shower tanka

morning shower
the mist gone thru the vent
in solitary, I wonder
whereabout outside this shell
all good companies

Dried up daisies tanka

how can you
stay out of my reach
the daisies dried up
and I am stuck on this page
of my live journal
