Tanka – Frameless Sky

 
swallows leave . . .
I feel a chill wind
around me
a desolate winter
without you

 

 

age
is fencing me in
slowly
the shadows of my past
creep up on me

 

 

ghosting –
you left me
alone
the revenant
in the mirror

 

 

bubbles
rise to the top
of the pond
how hard to let go
of all these regrets
