floating in air~~tan rengu

music fills the air
wild moths drawn to the flame...
out of darkness 
into the burning light
we dance into timelessness

This tanka is a tan rengu--written by two people. 
In Japan tan rengu was a popular form of writing hundreds of years ago and is resurging.

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. Simply beautiful. You both are so talented. The moth as anchor into timelessness. Nice flow.
