A stepping stone

a stepping stone
etched with a dragonfly
and welcome ...
…..the earth, the heavens,
……….me somewhere in between

    1. Thanks so much, Wendy!
      I've been enjoying your pub'd tanka that I've been seeing.

  2. I love this one. It captures the human situation--literal & metaphorical--so perfectly!

    1. Thanks! Am glad I got the kinks worked out of this one. A couple of years ago, I had to fiddle a bit with the last part.

  3. Ahhh...a nice welcome to this world of earth and the heavens. A poet has to be in both places to be a poet.
