vignettes

[ Tanka ]

I.

arid river bed
in v-shaped valley
awaits monsoon
for the wind to rattle
her name

II.

meet you again
near the lantern shrub

she told the sun
he searches for a poem
every morning

III.

akin to
an oyster's pearl
fondled by waves
his chiseled verses
remain password protected
