Some Tanka (Japanese) Poems

Watching the Game

"don't bother me now!"
--I bite like the sweetest bark--
steadying a vision
always grows into cruelty,
where visions crash crismon


putting feet to ground
I feel the rush of the run
thighs piston in time
chugging forward, forward
a dream of quickness clunking

Happy toes

feet, our quiestest
selves. made to bend with the mind
now suddenly propped up
bare, cheerful, shedding their ache,
rubbing in pairs, happily


gen'rally, I need
more time...or maybe less of
it to adjust to
the quiet that requires
I cease searching, for more time.

Sketches of My Girls

Jenny as a child. And a quick sketch of Abby reading in the Church foyer.

Some recent fast head and figure sketches. Guess of whom?

Christmas in October?

I know...just trying to get a jump on Christmas cards this year. (Do I ever send these things out anyway?! At least I try).
