A Wind-Whipped Umbrella (2 Eyeslit Tankas)

Dripping shards of grass
The obfuscated sun-slime
of a bleak current
Encircle toward the Vague
If only to sink within

The shivering self
and a wind-whipped umbrella
I stumbled at last
Not so luminous under
a silk quilt epiphany

    “Sun-slime” …!

    Such a cool notion; the sound of that word is great. Both of these tankas have great sound and rhythm to them.

    Jeff Jefferson, thank you very much. Hopefully Michigan will be an inspiring place this summer to reflect and craft some new poetry. Hope to meet up with you again this year, your schedule permitting.
