The day after :: Etheree

The plain truth
Moment between
Waiting for a sign
Tears turned out diamonds
In the middle of the fog
She knows, the mirror does not lie
Scars are embroidered into laces
The exhausting cries now sound like a valse

I’ve chosen the theme for this week’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge: The day after. With many things going on in this world right now, that I thought we should look ahead a little bit and maybe see some light.

  1. Ah had to look up ‘valse’….
    I like to look at Bil Keenes quote that I stitched up for my MIL, and got back when she passed:

    “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery.
    Today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present”

    We can only move forward one day at a time. And when we add a smile, even when it is raining the day can bring us a few unexpected gems.
