a daily tanka – June 2

the haul net beached
at last       sea mullet       hundreds
arch their backs      drowning

in sunlight, in air 
fishers’ delight

Some commercial fishers on the beach this morning: rowboats, Toyota Land Cruisers and gumboots and much yelling.

And today’s musical offering, here’s some joy from Hindustani artist Anandi Bhattacharya with Joys Abound (youtubers). Start anywhere, maybe Maya’s Dream.
