in my handwriting
you see an optimist's slope –
the slanted lines
taking flight off the page
with a fluttering of wings

  waking early
I search for the perfect tanka
that was there last night …
alas, this short-lived masterpiece
has vanished with the moon

    what does it matter
if my inkwell runs dry?
the rain and fog
will flush the world
with greenness all the same

at age five
my first poem, an ode
to lampshades –
trying ever since to grasp
the nuances of light

  a child of O'Keeffe
I've made words my ladder
to the moon –
critics cannot stop
cracking their knuckles
