Tanka - Tim W. Younce

[Other haiku & tanka] [Other titles in English] [All other titles]


spider web
spun between
canes of a rose-
pressed into the dirt
your knee prints

i see
my universe
contained within
the depths of
your eyes

how hard is it
to forget you?
pulling cockleburs
from the sleeve
of my jacket

leaden gray sky
leaves caught
in a whirlwind-
rustle of your raincoat
as you turn away

high cliff face
simple figure
pecked in stone-
circling hawk
