Tanka by Carol Purington

From the root-cellar
the last of the winter squash
still succulent,
the poem you wrote recalling
a grandmother’s hearty soup

Haiku by Jim Kacian

where the river widens just that much more light

the lineament
of lightning once
it’s gone

stars more questions than answers

out beyond the lit night sky meteor belief
