TANKA (HURRICANE MICHAEL 2018)

Thank you, Hurricane
For not touching down on me
Yet no happiness
Thinking of those affected
Survivor’s Guilt floods instead….

TANKA (National Coffee Day)

My favorite day!  Enjoy this tanka and the video, La Chanson du Cafe, from everyone’s favorite Cajun band  BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet:

Bright blue sky, white moon
Fading into morning mist
Dark consolation
Coffee smoothes the wrinkly day
Enriching timeworn burdens…

LAST NIGHT’S BLUEGRASS CONCERT (TANKA)

*scroll down for a YouTube video*

Bluegrass banjoing

Eating black beans on white rice

Vamping mosquitoes

Sounds and sights memory-etched

In the logbook of my soul…
