Pamela A. Babusci, US
 

 

 

 

Tanka

 

always independent
always in control...
are there no more
wild violets
for me to hand-pick?

 

 

penniless
in springtime
& nowhere to go

petals fall into the
bottomless well
 

 

morning erupts...
she leans in for his
first succulent kiss
the one that transports her
to another world

 

 

she clings to his
every word...
communion
of their hearts
inseparable

 

 

how many times
can a heart break
without dying?
unable to bear
the news of his death
