The Inuit – A Tanka Poem

The indigenous

Of the arctic subarctic

Hunter gatherers

Taking only what they need

For survival in the cold

Lunch Break – A Tanka

Break room here I come.

Reaching in the fridge for lunch,

Warming my food.

Thirty minutes. Eat quick!

Head back to finish the day.

Shut Down – A Tanka Poem

No More Space Shuttle,

Blue Angels, or Thunderbirds.

No more money left.

America is shut down.

Will she ever rise again?


Koi and the Lotus Flower – A Tanka

Floating in the pond

The lotus provides beauty

It’s roots a cover

Koi swim happily below

Nature working together

Zero plus Zero

Equals zero. If you don’t

Do your part today,

Don’t expect anything friend,

Because of your poor effort.

Life Is Like Chess

We all make our move

Sometimes we jump, or get jumped

We go all over

Chasing and running for dreams

The royalty always wins

The Model

Your beauty stellar

Dark hair flowing in the wind

Brown eyes enchanting

Red lips soft and succulent

The World admires your beauty
