2 Tanka: Crow & Moon

by October 30, 2022 0 comments


the huntsmen’s
hasty retreat

cry of the crow
with funeral eyes
unto dust we shall return


midnight moon
shivers of her labor
water breaking

the cry of a newborn
in the bush

editors note:

From dust we come, to dust we go. (This is a collaborative work between 2 poets; one from Malaysia, the other from Nigeria. It’s a mad world, indeed.) – mh clay
