Tanka #4

queen bee ‘s motto is
to not lift a finger as
she might break a nail
if a foolish fool does not
obey her pinkish pink wand.

 

~Poem 15
 
What if I break a nail?

Tanka #3

freshly baked cookies
exit a rusted oven
while knitting mittens
tangled threaded opticals
chant tales like a time machine.

~Poem 14
Grandparents are a blessing

Tanka #2

on Saturn’s fourth ring
she casts a paradigm shift
erasing errors
with one leg atop the left
as stardust slips through her fists.

Tanka #1

ageing with outrage
for warmth to be outdated
a three chambered heart
harshly dipped in cold lava
red is blood and love no more.

~Poem 12
Could red be only blood?
