Jinx – A Tanka

under clear skies, on
this enchanted full moon night,
thoughts of a jinx fade
but as apprehensions ease
there was still that little voice

Magic

I step out onto the porch, no light…

Stars are bright, moon’s out
adding to the magic of the night

Wonder how many others are
are finding this night just right

Counting stars enhances the magic of the night

Dusk

There is something calming about watching the sun ease over the edge of the horizon. Skies meet ocean, the dawn of dusk. It feels like a rendezvous with hints of new beginnings. As Day moves into the arms of night my thoughts turn to hopes for the next day. I exhale. I sense a chance to regroup, and give way to the start of something new – cloud free.

dawn of spring..
through shards of melting snow
purple crocus

summer sun beats down
on her head
breeze plays with golden tresses
covered by her silken scarf

parted in a flirty smile
tease the tired farmer
shapely form comes after dark
courtesan of midnight dreams
