Three New Poems

In my continued fascination with short Japanese forms, I composed the following today:

Speculative Dwarves:  a fantasy tanka that plays on the double meaning of dwarves as short poems and dwarves as mythical humanoids.

Burning Ambition:  a scifaiku that compares ambition to a comet.

The Thunder Lizards:  a fantasy/sci-fi tanka that may explain the cross-cultural phenomenon of dragons.
