Ribbons, Volume 15, Number 1, Winter 2019

the winter of my life


ice-bound,
a mosaic of leaves
suspended
between seasons
like frayed memories

I skate backward
through the rag-ends
of childhood,
a warm potato
in each mitten




My thanks to Pamela Babusci who mentioned the following poem in her Tanka Journey feature in this issue:


a halo around
the long night moon . . .
I find
another strand
of mother's light
