AUGUST MOON~~tanka series

Photo by luizclas on


under an August moon
no pockets
in my flimsy flowered dress
my hands have no home

heat rises
up my dress
nothings underneath
a breeze whispers
I can't help but blush

plumeria scented breeze
streaming down a moonbeam
this night
perfect for romance
yet I'm here all alone

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
