Still haunting me

still haunting me 
from time to time in dreams ...
your jet-black hair 
highlight-streaked to cover
the gray you now must have

Modern English Tanka 3, Spring 2007

  1. Such a very different take on "haunting"--touched with nostalgia and mystery.

  3. thanks for the feedback, jenny and jennifer! yes, a ghost of a different sort.

    I barely remembered it was Halloween - no trick-or-treaters out here where we live. But we did pick up some half-priced bags of candy (for "him") this morning!

  4. There's haunting and then there's haunting. Awesome double entendre! Holidays always seem to stir up those ghosts from the past, I find. A very sweet tanka.
