A Room of My Own: Red-Eye Flight Tanka

the blinking
of her red-eye flight
bound for Japan ...
I recall a silver sheen
on our summer lake

  1. The tanka above could be read as a prequel to the following poem:

    an airplane
    crossing the winter sky ...
    my immigrant life
    into before and after
