Night Sky

I wake staring at night sky
on this sleepless night

in the cool darkness, a peace
a setting free of worries

Spring Fling

Photo: Taken in my garden today. I didn’t do it, I promise. And that’s a clay pot. Who knows what else is under there!

 

forging a path through
no shrinking from adversity
tulips in the midst
of a glorious spring fling
gone are thoughts of winter

Solace – Tanka Tuesday

in the cool of this spring night-

moment of solace,

lower edge looks nibbled on,

a bit tattered, much like me

Love & Harmony

at the ocean’s edge..
eavesdropping on harmony
of wind and waves – I’m
tucked into their rhythm, that
hypnotic sway sounds like love

Revision:-

at the ocean’s edge
wind and waves move in concert –
as we greet the day
I’m tucked in their rhythm, that
hypnotic sway, such passion

For Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge over at Colleen’s using synonyms for Love & Harmony
I used “Passion & In Concert” for more responses check here

For some reason I forgot about the ‘synonyms’ part of the challenge.
So I rewrote it and decided to post them both.

Glimmer

a glimmer of spring –
once bare branches
of the pear tree
now clad in buds and
a smattering of sparrows

Democracy

flag 7 good

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

these tangled footprints still lure
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
