Selected Tanka: Barrenness Tanka

buried earth
a silver carpet --
maples and I
gaze at the barrenness
we see in each other

Selected Tanka, Gusts, 9, Spring/Summer 2009

Note: In celebration of the upcoming 7th anniversary of being a published writer of Japanese short form poetry, I am pleased to announce a new publishing project, Selected Tanka by Chen-ou Liu.
