Tanka -Intriguing Times


strange ferocity,
delighting in turbulence
shadowy figures
slips in and out of the cold
life in most intriguing times

Pat R


For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge where the prompt words are: Joy & Fury ( synonyms of)
I used Delight & Turbulence




Bond & Seek

an unlikely pair
this unbroken connection
through childhood trials,

and broken hearts, a cherished
gift, more than I could ask for
