Tanka Sequence

Happy Birthday
September 4, 1932—March 31, 2018


my dreamer’s dream
the fluff of fairy tales
and happy endings;
the fresh fragrance of you
like a May morning after rain

all that I feel
a lovely anguish
and a longing
relieved only by your kiss
and your arms encircling me

cheek touching cheek
your hand firm on my back
guides me as we dance;
our hearts falling 
into the same rhythm

Red Lights

This is your heartful dance,
and as his touch withholds your trance
within that grace of rhythm's prance,
memories sing_ of your romance.

thank you, Doug.
I'm sending you
a cyber hug

Thank you, Sandy. He was, and still is, my inspiration.
