Sasashi

                    no comb nor brush
                    can pass through my hair
                   gentle fingers
                   find their way in darkness
                   waves of undulating delight.

                   This is an excerpt from a tanka response--
                   Nights  of  Love...
                  by Genie Nakano and Kathebela Wilson.
                 coming out in Ribbons, 2021

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.

  1. Good to hear this. What a year gone by–so many of my friends passed and some still fighting cancer. Things are perking up around here. But I still don’t feel like being in crowds. It’s been too hard. So happy to hear from you!
