9 7 2014 spiderweb at dusk 1

the moth shreds her wings
on the spider’s lyre
– and i sing


“Turn & drink of me or look away…& never more think of me.”


without undressing
this heart
has nowhere left to hide
my feelings known to all

      All the pieces fell together with this tanka. And this is my favorite tanka from Jane Reichhold. Thank you for putting the two of us in touch 🙂
