    On the roadside, I ask the wind
    if I am a poet. A ripe persimmon falls;
    a woman picks it up, blows off
    the dirt; a child smiles. I choke up
    as it murmurs: now write me a tanka.
    "You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same."

    Love this poem. Also enjoyed the poetry on your link... I tried opening an Instagram account to better view, etc. but can't seem to navigate their waters. Been missing your voice (metaphorically).

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
