Morning Tanka

watching the grey clouds

drifting away as the sun

dominates the sky

the day finally broken

I begin to breathe in fire

A Trio of Tanka

Starlight dot to dot

Arc across the nighttime sky

Glittering snail trail

Celestial artistry

Imaginary crayons




Cross the bridge from night

Dance in early morning light

Shimmering rainbows

Coloured flutter of winged dreams

Lorikeets gossip and fight





Voluntary sigh

Choosing to weep for this earth

Destructive humans

All encompassing chaos

Age of new Aquarius
