5 thoughts on “(a tanka)

  1. Oh – there is so much in the short lines of this Tanka.
    The old: peek-a-boo
    The enforced modern: the video chat
    And, then – that powerful line: “born during a plague year” – which brings us to the beauty of a new child and the strangeness of families apart.

    Thank you for this poem!
