Sun burned and pure –
Dirty and clean –

Thunder of ice falling –
Next to silence of water flowing –
Hubbard glacier –

Next to silence of ice flowing –

Black and white will do

Tanka T088

I’ve never had to
Tell this many white lies in
One day in my life!
Need sandpaper to shorten
My nose to normal again!

Once white as a ghost –
Now brown like dark toast –
After vacation – in Hell?

Sonnet II

Whenever I see roses that are red,
I think of violets that come in blue,
For they prompt sweet memories in my head
Of the time I first set my eyes on you.
And when I see roses that are yellow,
I think of cherry blossoms that smell sweet,
And I recall how all seemed so mellow
Just looking at you, having yet to meet.
But when I see roses that are pure white,
To mind comes thoughts of orchids that are wild,
For they remind me of the stunning sight
I saw when you first caught my gaze, and smiled.
From then on, I could no longer presume,
That Spring had come, when I saw flowers bloom.
