A Room of My Own: Halo of Haze Tanka

all alone
with the promise she made
when I worked abroad ...
a halo of haze
dims the winter moon

  1. Below are two of my published poems that could be read as sequels to the tanka above:

    her promised letter arrives
    from afar—
    in my bedroom mirror
    pieces of the winter moon

    A Hundred Gourds, 1:1, December 2011

    night after night
    her last words ripple
    through my mind…
    in the winter sky
    the hazy day moon
