shining star (tanka)

sun plays peekaboo

sun winks at me beyond despair

sea of waves
gentle pearls in the sky
veil of shining star
playing peekaboo
before settling for the night.

sun winks at me
spilling morsels of brightness
I’m filled with grace
shall rise above despair
tomorrow is another day.
