New Zealand poetry magazine "Kokako" posted " A Cappella"

"A Cappella" which is a sequence of English Haiku and English Tanka that Ms. Deborah P. Kolodji and I composed together was posted in a New Zealand poetry magazine, "Kokako" in its volume 34.

The cover of Kokako issue 34 is an image created by Mr. Ron Moss, who is an artist and English Haiku poet.





A Cappella

can you see
longing . . .
under the thick clouds (M)

my dreams fly
a mountain pokes through
the mist (D)

seeing me
in your world
find yourself
in matching sunglasses (M)

backyard pond
I hear your words
in the mirror(D)

one wing of
a pair. . .
we each sing
a different verse (M)

a cappella
at midnight
moonglow (D)
