Tanka

 

between the hills
day moon hovers
at dawn
your face no longer
nestles in the pillows

 

 

where did I lose you
even our footprints scrambled
in the gravel
scarcely a weed grows
on such stony ground

our passion
sets me so much aflame
I have to bathe
in jasmine flowers
picked in moonlight

snow falls
heavier
I didn’t know
how much unspoken words
could hurt

Moonbathing a journal of women’s tanka #13 (Fall/Winter issue 2016)

 

covering
the ground between us
fallen leaves
I remember the changes
we never made
