In Brighton (2 Tanka)

by Julie Adams

around the green trim
I followed a young turtle
king of the garden
lost in the dense foliage
solitude dances with wind


through my hair, gently
the beach oxygen wiggles
between locks and thoughts
in deep breaths, the children laugh
dragging buckets to the shore

ooh I like these. very vivid. in each of them, you have the scene itself, and then this lovely sense of something bigger. they are very inspired.
