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

melodious brook

liven up winter air, moss

still hangs at its edge

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

Tanka Tuesday

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
