a restful place

this message in a bottle

awaiting it’s fate

next, a not so quiet end

imagination sets pace

Sidewalk Brawl

between two sparrows
a tumbling-mid-air-to-ground
brawl, a ruckus ploy

depleted, one pulls way back-
entranced, horn rouse me from wonder

norms devoured, I’m
riveted by the mayhem –
tales taller than most

delivered with conviction,
bringing darkness a new birth

Spring Sighting -Tanka Haibun

This winter has not been especially kind to my spirits. A heavy heart loomed, most times out of nowhere. It was hard to get ahold of, or figure out why. This fueled my quest for spring which took its time getting here.Today, I spotted my first cherry blossoms! A lone tree, stands among others that still stood tall, gawky and bare. This lifted my spirits.

 

first of the season
a cherry blossom sighting
as spring takes a hold
the blossoms ripple and sway
in spring breeze, lightens my mood

precious gift, ardor unmatched
