Tanka – Loss (18)

When I rest my head

My heart returns to this place

Taking me backwards

With the ebbing tide of love

I live here in your seasons… 6 more words



i yet see her face
with its freckles uncounted
that she often hid

and i hope for her much peace
and grace to soothe her spirit

Original Poems

in garden whispers

always of sorrow
she spoke in garden whispers

the borderline of regret
desire in many faces

Original Poems


in the moonlight
among the pebbles
a bare heart
silent breath from the North
announces a severe winter

Linked to¬†Carpe Diem Time Glass #34, “juxtaposition”

Days In The Blackberries Field


myriad, her names

we joined together fiercely

the many of her
and the almost one of me

and manifold was our grief

Original Poems

This is NOT a Male Midlife Crisis - Tanka

Just turned fifty-three

Life Satisfactory

Gemini bored to core

Will travel to distant shores

Out one two years maybe more

the woman i thought i knew

looking back upon
the woman I thought I knew –

now, the secret storm
pours in around the edges

her hidden sorrowing seas
