a daily tanka – May 20

enormous moon
rising over rooftops 
a yellow hibiscus
spills over your fence
— neighbours stare open-mouthed

And for music today, here’s French ondist Christine Ott with Chimeres (pour ondes Martenot). (Youtubers here’s the album) An Ondes Martenot is an early (1928) electronic instrument and a player of this weirdness is an ‘ondist’.

  1. It’s such a warm tone. “Coma” is also interesting. Do you really have hibiscus sneaking a peek through the fence? So much better than our neighbour’s small white puffball that barks at us through the fence.
