Tanka Pair

Eiderdown

curling up
on this old mattress
bony knee
on top of bony knee
I search for softness

expansive,
this quilted cover
of clouds    
…..patches of darkness
threaded with light

Skylark, Winter 2016

  1. A wonderful pairing, contrasting human-made & natural sources of 'softness.' I especially like the last two lines.

  2. I can picture both scenes clearly. Nice writing.

  3. A delightful tanka coupling. (It looks as though you managed to get comfy in the clouds.)

  4. We all need and search for softness. I think you found yours.
