My final verse for the tanka sequence “Forever Home” was inspired by a photo I took in the seaside community of Mystic, CT. (To see Kirsten’s final tanka and picture for “Forever Home,” visit Swimming in Lines of Haiku.)
a convex mirror reflects
the memory . . .
an ocean’s ebb and flow
the rhythm of the moonlight
