Ekphrastic Tanka #1: Hear my Ancient Call

From Gabriel Rosenstock’s Tanka Book “Secret of Secrets” p 16 https://www.edocr.com/v/djr6qn6d/gabrielrosenstockbis99/secret-of-secrets

hear my ancient call

from mists beyond the hermit’s cell

see the rising dawn

we who gaze with bated breath

journeying from one to all
