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

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

the view up the creek
offers a beauty that dwells
in this bend of the creek
rhythm in the mountain air
unwavering – soul soothing

a mid morning breeze

leaves in a carefree tumble

flutter, dip, and swoon

with lilt of a butterfly,

grace bestowed, free to the end

below the surface
hidden in these reflections,
lives of compromise
where ocean water meets fresh –
overcoming, adapting

a restful place

this message in a bottle

awaiting its fate

next, a not so quiet end

imagination sets pace
