I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world,
to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Rainfall night: July tanka 2012

rainfall night
the cats curled in armchairs
you in bed
falling into dreams
of cats and rain


in all poetry
two parts are better than one
he says —
a bold assertion combining
authority and the absurd




  1. haha i love a little absurdity in my poetry....smiles...

    we actually let our kitten sleep inside last night...too cute to move...he did fine until 4 am
