Christmas Tankas - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

OUR SPIRITS STEP FORTH FROM OUR MOUTH

snowflakes fall & fall
as smoke from the bonfire
climbs higher & higher
our words form in front of us
this the year of the Dragon

*******


WHEN A LOVELY FLAME DIES

fire looks even more
like fire...in falling snow
tears freeze on the cheek
bonfire of our vanities
us gone up in smoke...ashes
