Tanka--By Anne Curran--New Zealand

vintage cider,
preserves and jelly,
in nana's cellar...
if I could bottle
one ounce of her wisdom

her dripping raincoat
hanging from a hook
on the porch ...
early for my ageing friend
to retire from the garden

with a smile
he kicks a drop goal ...
how good it feels
to be in the right place
at the right time
