A cicada in the cosmos: tankas by Angela Leuck

Inkling Press, 2010, 99 p. ISBN 978-0-9810725-4-8

daring me

to be bold –

the giant

red dahlia

at your door

in front of the church

apple blossoms

like confetti

I daydream of weddings

until the hearse pulls up

in a vase

on the table

as I wait for his call

those pale green roses

called Limbo

burdundy-coloured

poppies –

so predictable

my attraction

to the exotic
