Blueline and Red Thread: Scream from the Shadows, V

winter sunlight
reaches the frayed cover
of War and Peace ...
the white neighbor erects
a fence between our houses
(note: first published in Ribbons, 11:2, Spring/Summer 2015)

white neighbors
who shout no more immigrants
and I now live
in a world of one color:
snow falling on snow

Note:  This is the last set of tanka in the first themed section, titled "Scream from the Shadows." And you can read the preceding tanka here.
