Tanka for April 24
A beautiful face
Now marred by accidental
Damage.  How do I
Make her believe that to me
She will always be lovely?

Tanka on Too Much Dante
Lost in a dark wood,
I keep on asking myself,
“How did I get here?”
Small choices from long ago
Still shape my future pathways.

Tanka for April 17
Sometimes, even now,
I reach to call my mother.
Useless phone in hand,
I shake my head ruefully,
And put the phone down again.

Tanka for April 15
Why did I do that?
Tomorrow’s meeting was not
On my calendar.
But the student looked so lost
And I said I would help her.

Tanka for 4/14
Still not sleeping well.
Molasses seeps through my brain.
I have to grade tests,
But I fear my cranky side
May bleed through the thin white page.

Tanka for April 13
Frozen cookie dough.
I’m quite simply ecstatic.
It’s even on sale.
Sometimes it’s the simple things
We need to keep us going.

Tanka for April 12
Waiting for my friend
Seeing familiar aspect
Briefly in each face.
Seconds stretch out endlessly;
Uncertainty dogs my heels.

Tanka for April 11
Spring is distracting.
I keep trying to focus.
So much to be done
Before the hot sticky days
Of summer sap all my will.

Anger Issues Tanka
Really. I mean it.
Never contact me again.
And while we're at it,
Why don't you move far away
And never darken my door.
