Reunion  flower

when she goes away
July slips into August
he remains alone
dreamless in an empty bed
under the fullest of moons           
morning is birdsong
silence in the afternoon
twilight advances
night on green mountain
he imagines her ocean
pours coffee and waits
another clear sky
ocean air washes inland
distance vanishes
her garden fountain singing
the bed no longer empty

tanka / haiku / senryu / tanka


Thanks to Frank J. Tassone over at the dVerse Poets Pub website for encouraging us to deliver some imagist work(s). I polished up this series from the Works-In-Progress file.

  1. Very good response to the prompt with this tanka/haiku/senryu feast. And it felt good you concluded on a positive vibe/vein.
