a broken open place

inside, still no moon.
but there is a broken
open place.
I am learning
to sing from there.

Hello Smiling Heart,

what a beautiful blog. Hey, I found a quote of mine here, though, delightfully misquoted as being from Rumi. This small tanka is mine. It's part of a larger tanka sequence on my blog,, which includes other material that is written by Rumi and translated by Coleman Barks. That materials is all in italics. It's my way of having a conversation with him. But these words that you've quoted are ones from me. You may certainly use it, but quote me, please. Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer
