I am sharing these tanka with you because I found them to be especially clear and deep. Enjoy. Leslie

if this then that
easy to get stuck on the that
morning meditation
I try to work my way back
to the if this

I speak
my friend is silent
we listen hard
for the tone created
when our differences touch

feeling misunderstood
by a friend
I regain
my sense of being
homeless in English

beautiful furniture
sits heavy when my spirit
is off kilter-
breathes home into my house

early I arise

to enjoy

the cooling shade of

a leafy tree

and a spacious mind
