A Tanka about Writing

her words linger,
writing does not put food
on the table ...

another winter
colder than the last

Midlight Tanka

at midnight
my thoughts and hand moving
across the page:
I tanka-barricade
the door to loneliness

The Winter of My Discontent, A Haiku Sequence

unemployed ...
I graze on a meadow
of winter clouds

Now Hiring
flaps in the winter wind ...
last rays of sunlight

long way to work ...
the winter sun devours
my shadow
