A daily tanka – 6 May

low on the shore 
rocks sharp in the early bright
drape of sea lettuce

water looped like breathing
like knowledge, this cold eden

Today’s musical offering: American composer Peter Garland with Japanese pianist Aki Takahashi with Waves Breaking on Rocks – it’s all lovely – but those northern hemispherians looking forward to summer, maybe start with Summer Again.

And as a bonus track, if you’re new to Peter Garland (as I am) here’s a short accordion piece called Nights in the Gardens of Maine.
