blossoms

[Tanka]

**

his parting words
hearts share loneliness
entice her
the fiery racemes
stab deep inside


**

croons the myna
amid parrot tree florets
unmindfully
she stitches garlands
with keel-shaped petals

illusions

[Tanka]

**
watching
the unsullied dawn
her blushed smile
he gifts her
a red corundum

**

in starlight
she hunts all corners
for her lost coins
these alleys weren’t vague
last full moon night

**

differ
from the worldly-minded

silver sickle tells her
spinning dreamy threads
could be great occupation
