first summer rain
forecast but not yet falling
and yet…

sunlit dust
how much more skin
will I shed?

birthday party
a woman’s toe pokes out from
her high heeled shoe

winters end
saying goodbye to friends
as I leave the party

      Really?! Thanks Graham! I’m still stuck on haiku, but getting a grasp on tanka. Your new collection is excellent! Grabbed a copy from collected works, mere hours after you dropped it off!
