Tanka – Red Lights

 

coronation year –
a monkey dances
on the organ
while mother shows me off
in the street

 

the blackbird
ends its song
in the quiet afternoon
I place violets
on mother’s grave

Haiku – Blithe Spirit

 

British summer time
the sound of rain
in the blackbird’s song

 

celandines
my child-self comes out
of the shadows

 

fingernail moon
the peace
between wars
