A untitled Tanka:
Natures Candles glimmer
Autumn's lightning blooming
Petal plumage droops n flickers
Leaves wither in white dew
Foliage raindrops in free fall

As I reach into my bag I do so a little more intently
I embrace it a little more intuitively  earnestly
As I retrieve it into my field of view I give it a visual   a tactile twice over 
My fingertips caress its soft leather bound skin   feeling it out for bruises   scratches   or tearing
My fingertips intentionally ease up alongside its elastic strap
I then gleefully
Spreed my MOLESKINES inner binding open to release that smell   feel   and look that is so enticingly familiar
I can't resist stroking the slight gap created flush up against its inner spine
I grab its back with my left hand and press hard up against its pages with my right
While leaving droplets from my soul upon its pages
I then firmly   lovingly bear down with my thick felt pen into its pages
Trying not to stain or smudge too much   but sometimes 
I just lose all inhibition    and scratch!

Here there everywhere

Recalcitrant winds gust about

East West North and South 

Ephemeral gorge winds

10 Degrees at Dawn

                                                               10 Degrees Dawn

The Gorge frozen dry

The sun diffused by clouds

Its mountainous walls drenched in dripping rain

Salted,  plowed,  well groomed

In the median  you go

Grimy    mucky     snow
