4 tanka

1.

how swift
the play of light
over pebbles
under water...
my invalid mornings

2.

gazing at sunset
me and a fellow patient--
two crows
sitting quietly apart
on a slender autumn branch

3.

the earth shook
when I saw you again
at the race
my horse had always
trailed behind yours

4.

blue hydrangeas
in my garden
turn to pink
how can one lessen
the acid in your words
