Sierra Mountains

(1937-2017) F.) 

Sierra Mountains (tanka)



the dreamer
never dreaming
to live a dream
leaving everyone else
behind in the future

long meadow
is too short to hold
the emptiness
of leaving a family
longing for their faces

high in the mountains
suspended over the valley
even spirits
smoothing the paths
toe to heel, toe to heel

ocean breezes
a coolness blowing inland
my message
meets hers mid-air
the tie that binds

winding road
crawling higher
into the forest
reaching above the treetops
to touch the clouds
