tanka--By Anne Curran--New Zealand

I feel something
akin to tenderness
when caring for this house ... 
It never tires being together
with an old friend

the girl in hockey uniform
takes her father's hand
when shopping ...
a simple act
on an ordinary day

Anne Curran writes in Hamilton New Zealand where she resides with her pet car Misty and extended family of parents, brothers and sisters. She loves art, going to see films, and walks.
