Ribbons, Volume 14, Number 3, Fall 2018

the ocean
was in a rage last night
but today,
these peace offerings
of blue mussels and kelp

1st Place, 2018 Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest


on this night
of our awareness,
the aurora
brushes an ensō
across lake and sky

Honourable Mention, 2018 Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest


wheat fields
tousled by fingers
of wind
I tuck a strand of hair
behind your ear

Honourable Mention, 2018 Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest

a tulip
overwhelmed with rain . . .
tomorrow,
I will straighten my stem
and turn toward the sun
