Kannon*

Hello World:
Today I received the International Tanka Journal No. 8, 2020 from Japan. My tanka series, Kannon is on page 15. Very happy! Today the news declared Biden is our elected President. Very, Very happy!!!

Kwan yin
stands poised in my backyard
a wall of
ficus grows behind her
purple flowers at her feet

her eyes cast down
in quiet meditation
entering
an internal world
om mani padme hum.

in the quiet
of morning light
I look for you
to calm my eager spirit
sometimes you are hard to feel

a stone statue
where my hopes and dreams
are focused
loving kindness compassion
breaks hardness into softness

Kwan yin,
I know you are just an image
not real in terms of flesh
yet, deep within me
you are growing and alive
