Inglish Tanka

high noon sunlight
beats down on this rooming house...
the migrant
with a gap-toothed smile
says, I'm learning Inglish

Willpower Tanka

a senate claims
women can block rape sperm
with willpower!
throughout the night, I hear
walnuts hitting the ground

Canada Day, A Tanka Sequence

the tenth year
since I moved to Canada ...
my thought trails
a drifting maple leaf
that catches the sunlight

on the screen
I AM superimposed
over a maple leaf ...
rainbow flowers
blooming in the night sky
