Tanka 1 and 2

Tanka 1: His Great-grandfather

He leaves home and runs
five days on the road he roams
stopping at a grave
his great-grandfather's tombstone
he kneels and cries at the sight

Tanka 2: A Worthy Walk

The day is clear, warm
We wait on friends then journey
to Ole Miss' campus
for DFM's Oxford walk
We fight one step at a time
