I always thought
mother’s silk pillow cases
now that they are mine I dream
silk worms threading light to light

That's so lovely, Marjorie.
Thank you Lynne! You are such a creative poet and writer! Wish the world weren't so big we could have a cup of tea together in the kitchen!
One day, maybe!
What a wonderful tanka to wake up to! Sensual and deep.
Thank you so much Sheila! I still remember our good talks at the conferences we have had together. Love your beautiful artwork and poetry site!
Very, very nice work, Marjorie. Personally, love it when a work starts from being rooted in a moment of something and then effectively points to a deeper Way beyond it. :)
Thank you so much Brian for your kind words! I love your Daily Haiku Blog…
Well, I have to thank you for your kindness! It's a new project for me and your reaction means more than you can know!
Marge, so great to see one of your pieces. Great, as always. You know I have always enjoyed your work. Hopefully hear from you soon. Emilie
Emilie! So nice to hear from you. Please e-mail me at juno.com. I lost your e-mail!
Thank you Rosemary! Love your blog!
Beautiful tanka, Marjorie. Love that last line!
Thank you Penny! It truly means a lot to me that you like the tanka and took the time to respond. Hope to see you once again at a conference!
Beautiful poem- "light to light" – mothers – and I think of a verse in the Psalms that speaks of "strength to strength." Blessings, Ellen
Thank you Ellen! Have you attended Mineral Point conferences? It is a wonderful weekend retreat in Wisconsin.
Thank you Marion! Maybe I will see you on facebook! Love your haiga and haiku…what a wonderful blog you have.
