More on Light

Listen
to the laughter,
chocolate-chased giggling and
bageled love feasts. Sweet echoes that
linger

in light,
flickering flames,
as stars glow from afar
with ghost motes that dust our beings,
always.

A double cinquain for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. Colleen asked us to write about holiday traditions. Our family holidays always revolve around food and include lots of laughter. My mom had the best laugh, and we all miss her.

    Wonderful Tanka, Merril. I see it as a beautiful poem, with ghost motes dusting my being.
