Collaborative tanka pair: Sanctum

Happy Winter Solstice! Glad to share this "tanka pair" with all of you. And glad I was able to collaborate with poet extraordinaire Jenny Ward Angyal.

Sanctum

Janet Lynn Davis
& Jenny Ward Angyal

ancient chapels
carved into the rock face
of Mönchsberg ...
once the tourists have gone
I crawl inside myself

JLD (Salzburg, Austria)  

inscribed 
on the torii gate
spirit of light
fountains flowing
in the falling snow

JWA (New York City, USA)

  3. I like both of these. Strong images for such small poems -- the essence of tanka. Nicely done. :)
