Night Shift Tanka

walking home
from the last night shift . . .
I hold a copy
of my first chapbook
like the harvest of sorrow

Divorce Tanka

after the divorce
I run into my first love
on a misty night
like kids we play
Chinese Whisper

Shore Tanka

stitch after stitch
in the clothes I wear,
hope against hope
I will soon return home . . .
Mother alone on the shore
