Democracy

flag 7 good

on the march through time
a complicated history
dreams morph to nightmares –

these tangled footprints still lures
in dreams in faraway lands

Belching Dragon

Wild fire roars through the hillside
Lick of flames releasing crumbling embers skyward like a belching dragon
With cinders on the fly furthering its cause

wild fire smoulders
flames refuse to be subduded –
nature’s wildest child

stoked by whipping winds fury
on insatible rampage

Dawn – A Tanka

a hush starts the day
morning bids farewell to dawn –
here on the ocean

waves once bathe in twilight pay
homage to the rising sun

Calm & Present

For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday where we’re to use synonyms for the words Calm & Present. I used Hush & Here.

Catching Raindrops

As winter gray rules the sky, a young family walks quickly down the sidewalk, Anxious to retreat from looming rain. First drops make contact – mom’s footsteps quicken. Facinated by the fat splat to his forehead the toddler breaks the pace.

arms outstretched

palms skyward,
a new distraction

catching raindrops –
the razzle dazzle
of it all!
