Bridge may ice

bridge may ice,
shoulder ends ahead—
road signs
I see for the first time
soon after her passing

Ribbons, winter 2016/17

Even in Texas, out here in the country, bridges can ice in winter, though we only had a few "real" days of winter this winter.

  1. A very effective, multi-layered poem.

  2. The tanka form is such a brilliant vehicle for the bitter-sweetness of irony - which you have used to great effect here.

  3. Those road signs...so easy to miss them in people we love.
