*-* Big Tom, Story, Friends (3 Tanka)

Poem By Ben Gieske

big tom
spilling into towns
beware
aggressive bird
with spurs

all too visible
mountain lion’s story
in the snow
children can only try
to cover their tracks

white bird
on rhino’s back
sometimes
I wonder
about friends

You paint these three tankas with an ink brush, Ben. Each image, a flourish of black. Each making a distinctive and indelible impression. Fine work. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
