white sands
still hot on my bare feet
as the sun sets
amidst broken sand dollars
tears flow for you

Departing Geese

Departing Geese

Carpe Deim’s Tanka Shrine #2 Chèvrefeuille’s “departing geese”




the wild geese fly

ahead of the winter storm

haunting cries echo

rippling the ponds surface

splashes and honks sing of spring


ahead of the child

the wild goose flees

honking wildly

laughter and squeal fill the air

as mother scoops up her child


The wild Goose Chase quilt was created by me.
