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.

Shortest Day

As we drove home from our escape to the mountains this evening, we noted the throng of pedestrians walking onto the Brooklyn Bridge. The setting sun was the draw. That huge setting sun was a blaze of orange, just sitting at the waters edge. This made for specular views on approach to the bridge while driving. I have never noticed the sun this size before. Too busy not looking up, I guess. I’m not sure what caused it, but it was a sight to behold three days before Christmas!

a huge sun

lolls in evening sky-

shortest day

Wicked Winds

wicked winds stir up

mundane dry leaves in the yard –

lively waves begin
