“Calligraphy” Tanka 1051

(May 2, 2018)


pink brushstrokes encroach

a silver full moon

chromatic hello


ephemeral sight o’erhead

in minutes all is dull gray*


  • (And, further to complicate the scene: in but a few more minutes the brushstrokes maneuver and become two-town cotton puffballs with gunmetal gray undersides further surrounding the now-fading morning’s serene selene going to fade)
