A Trio of Tanka

beware the wolf
wearing sheep’s clothing,
but – more likely –
you’ll meet sheep wearing
wolf attire while talking shit

light green leaves,
in early amber light,
flare brightly,
drawing the eye from
mundane forest greens

a lone tree,
standing atop a hill
doesn’t feel lonely;
a nexus is assumed —
invisible or not
