for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

through lattices/what glues raindrops (two tanka)


through lattices
this condensation
of phrases
the glimpses we veil
in silence


what glues
raindrops to foggy
consider my hand
slipping away

    • Oooh, dear friend, Sanjukta, thanks so much for your valued comment!!! What indeed! Not the eyes, surely, for it only sees! The heart, for sure, which dictates how long we should hold onto a raindrop! Thanks again for coming by!
