Tan Renga: Temple in the Sky

temple in the sky
the road opens
a slice of blue sea (Ubugu)

beckons the wind tossing waves
in play frolicking at the shore

temple in the sky
the road opens
a slice of blue sea (Ubugu)

near days end the setting sun
builds it’s beach side audience

Tan Renga: A Still Water

such a still water
even the dragonfly
splash it with the tail

sending ripples through the clouds
that are peering up at me

Perspective

Prompt words: Ethereal, placid, meander, forget, silver

PERSPECTIVE

white foamy waves dash toward shore, strains of my life

nothing ethereal about them on their approach

angry waves morph to placid waters
as they ease upon the sand

mesmerized I sit with eyes closed, meandering thoughts

lost in the language of the surf – a presence greater than I

the twinkling shimmering silver on the ocean’s surface a shifting changing wonder

an ever present reminder that
my ails is but a speck in this universe

no planets revolve around me
