Tanka Sequences "The Great Door"

please
don't set out for
your last trip...
it's snowing
like approaching shadow

opening
the great door
of astronomy --
I close my eyes
to hear your voice

cardiogram
the waves
in my heart
keep working
ignoring the accident

at the market
among the purple grapes
a few
young green ones ...
thinking about my son

Tanka-Cafe; Theme "The Shadow of things"

shadow
on the leaf mold--
ancestral
gene awake
in my silhouette
