Some Tanka

令和三年一月二日
In the quiet of
Freshly fallen snow so bright
Tears come to my eyes
My cheeks flushing in the cold
I cannot take back my words

#poetry365 What Is Said

令和三年正月
Snow is best enjoyed
Indoors under heavy quilts
With a pile of cats
Let the winter’s fury fly
So long as it stays outside

#poetry365 Privilege

令和二年十二月三十一日
A certain magic
At the turning of the year
Despite everything
Try to look past the darkness
Surely spring will come again

#poetry365 O-Shogatsu お正月

令和二年十二月三十日
Such desolation
The wind rattles tunelessly
Through empty branches
An emaciated drunk
Lurches weakly out the door
