Tanka Society of America 7-Day Twitter Tanka Project, May 2020

My thanks to curator, Susan Burch!


Day 1 - May 10, 2020

I carry
an ocean within
my pocket . . .
this blue lace agate
etched with ancient tides

a smudge
of blackbirds swirling
into evening . . .
how fluid the shape
of this sorrow

the growth rings
of otoliths and trees . . .

become smaller
than her daughters

Day 5 - May 14, 2020

a star tortoise
carries the universe
on its back . . .
are we slowly moving
away from each other

these peace offerings
of blue mussels and kelp
