radiance catcher craving the light and the warmth hunting for the sun clouds bathing me with desire a wish in each step the sparkle lays within me my soul smiles sunbeams when I see her reflection brightening the wildflowers
Happy Summer! Finally it is here, I’m sure I’ll miss the spring freshness, but I’m ready for all the pleasures of the summer.
It has been cloudy these last few days. I went to a park in the last day of spring, the longest day of the year to see the sunset, but I think the sun wasn’t aware that lots of people were outdoors waiting for its performance that evening. Anyway, it was pleasant to be outdoors in the middle of beautiful flowers. And as Rumi says:
Don’t you know yet?
It is your light that lights the worlds.Rumi
Tanka Tuesday this week is a theme prompt – Discovery – I didn’t use this word in my poem, but you can feel that it is about discovering the light/energy that lays inside each one of us. I used the form Choka, a new one for me, it contains 9 lines: 5-7-5-7-5-7-5-7-7 and doesn’t need to rhyme.
I hope you enjoy it!
