  1. A bilingual tanka in Iluko and English…a plea, a wish

    maruros manen
    rinemmengmo a rosas
    ipinas mo man
    dagiti tidda ti biag
    iti baet dagiti birri

    petals in shreds
    those bouquet of roses –
    patch if you please
    these remnants of life
    between fissures

    *Iluko, one of four major in 87 Philippine dialects, of the northernmost edge of the archipelago. A dialect I was born with but hardly ever spoke as an adult and never written with until three years ago when it awoke in my spirit among members of a yahoo group.

  2. I have no published wishes, dreams, dandelions, or eyes. Some being published in the spring, but that’s too late for this. One prayer, but that is different.

    Today, I am relegated to ‘observer’. It is a pretty garden of dandelion dreams.

    • No. That’s my rule for myself. For many editors, work that’s been in a blog (or on Facebook or any other open page) has been published, and will not be considered for publication.

      Because of this, I can’t put work on a public page until it has been in “print” in a journal.

      Cara has made no such request. I am imposing my own borders, for obvious reasons.

    • Billy– unpublished work is fine, and you will see many who have shared new work here. Seánan is correct that pretty much all editors will consider work “published” if it appears on a blog (although some are more forgiving about Facebook and Twitter, like Frogpond)– as long as that’s not a problem for you, it’s not a problem for me!

  3. hope I’m not too late … I was distracted by ducks, yesterday. 😉

    in my dream, the boat
    never arrives
