I Wonder

A gray dove flies
Under a cloudy sky
I am secured
Under her wing
The dove’s heart beats
Faster and faster
We go higher
Blue, Azul, indigo

Underneath
Warm and soft
A down of comfort
And I wonder
I doubt
How many questions
Can one ask
I wonder
Dove wraps me tighter
Heartbeat soothes
Pulses into mine
How high can we fly
Is this a dream
I wonder

Invisible
Light and sound
Go through me
Not a woman any more
But I am here
Can you hear me
I wonder

The mist
Warm inviting
Surround sounds
Until I can’t hear

Imagine a world

Beyond
Human senses
What is the ninth sense
I wonder

See invisible
Taste air
Smell seasons
Hear memories
Present
Presence
Touch
Move
Everything
Everyone
Everywhere
Open
Wonderful
Wonder
Full

Genie Nakano

I was born in Boyle Heights, CA. known as the barrios of East L.A. I am a journalist for The Rafu Shimpo and have written three books of Haiku and Tanka. My latest is "Colorful Lives" a tanka and adult coloring book. Tanka, the elder elegant sister of haiku, is my favorite form of writing it keeps me succinct and musical at the same time. After all..tanka means "short Song".
I was a professional dancer and photographer for many years. Currently I teach Yoga and tanka at the Japanese Cultural Institute In Gardena, CA.
