'Exiles Tanka' - Poem by Res John Burman

As winter storms in
My little mimosa tree
Sports shivering blooms

The collared dove warms her feet
Dreaming of Southern Sunshine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Far from the mountains
Where sages lived forever
My heart grows older

Remembering younger days
And weeping dark bamboo tears.
