02.21.15

Walking through deep sand
freeing each unstable foot
from inside the mouth
of sands’ new grasp, exhausting
pilgrimage to the shoreline

Tanka 02.19.15

Smile at the impasse
step back as it develops
wise Goats do not war
rather climb highest mountains
tenaciously as pride sleeps

Happy Chinese New Year of the Goat (or Sheep or Ram)
