Warp and Weft ~ Images and Words: Skylark, Vol. 6, Number 1, Summer 2018

#Haiku Happenings #2: Debbie Strange’s #Tanka appears in Blithe Spirit!

Honoured to have my photograph chosen for Skylark’s inaugural cover contest:

Individual kyoka and tanka:

macular
degeneration
I see
more clearly now
than ever before

a mirage
of mountains beckons
me homeward
we don’t know their names,
but they know ours

they have
scarcely enough
to survive
and yet, this music
under the bridge

Selected Tanka Sequence for Another Chance to See Feature

Going Back

big sky morning
ancestral homesteads
felled by wind
hollow bones whistling
a song I used to know

barrelling
down washboard roads
between fields
plumes of the past lingering
on all I left behind

at day’s end
light beams splintering
across shorn fields
on this moonless night
I, too, am camouflaged

Note: Going Back was first published in Ribbons, Volume 11, Number 3, Fall 2015
