Resurrected Warmth: A Wayra

Winter’s biting frost,
Arctic wind’s chilling whispers,
crawling, creeping, ‘tween us,
waking ev’ry bones, nerves,
resurrects warm bodies once dead.

I’ll Be: A Tanka*

whispers comfort to your soul
I’ll be the water
that washes, heals your burnt holes
after you’re engulfed in flames.
