Shadorma 263, Tanka 250

From the book Count Syllables on Your Fingers, 2020.

Shadorma 263

Leaves fell. Scrub
died back. Now I see
dark bare trees
how they do
raise their shapely arms how they
do finger the sky


From the book Writing Notebook 2021, published in 2022.

Tanka 250
a nuanced tirade
wearing a blue velvet dress.
its nap stands on end
her hands smooth it. Springing back
she hardly stops to draw breath

    • Thank you. You know, I have loved velvet since I was little though I believe the closest I have come to having a velvet garment is velveteen dresses ( my sister and I had same fabric different styles) when I was maybe 6. Still…there is still time…
