On my knees

on my knees 
in a forest of weeds ... 
through the night 
the chatter of small things 
I rip from my life


Eucalypt, 20, Spring 2016 (Distinctive Scribblings award)

Many thanks to Jenny Ward Angyal for selecting my tanka but especially for her beautiful, thoughtful appraisal, a work of art in its own right.
