A Room of My Own: Song of Relief Tanka

One Hundred Seventy-Ninth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary

first warm day
of this pandemic winter
my niece
sings her song with each slap
of a beaded jump rope

Added: One Hundred Eightieth Entry

a surge of wind
social distance between me
and an unmasked white man

Added: One Hundred Eighty-First Entry

midnight moon
the silence between me
and a masked driver

  1. It might be interesting to do a comparative reading of the following haiku:

    six feet apart
    between my neighbor and me
    a patch of sunlight
