a field of wishes
scattered, pieces of a dream
hunting the magic
wind is blowing illusion
secrets of the harvest moon

how many times do we wish that illusions turn into reality? we are lost in a field waiting for the magic. it was nice to write this poem last evening. the words came out without much thinking, and I understood that I’m waiting too much. 

Sharing with tanka tuesday. this week’s theme is harvest moon.

  1. Very fitting and so well done, Elizabeth. For me, one line got me … Not one in the poem, but this one in your short narrative … “we are lost in a field waiting for the magic.” …. a perfect explanation of your poem.

    Sorry I didn’t respond to your question when I last commented here. All is well here, and I’m hoping for beach walks to return in late October.


    1. Hi Frank, good to hear everything is well. I was away a little bit, trying to recharge and rest before the busyness of the fall started. I agree, that sentence is a tough one for me, I’m always waiting for something instead of taking action. Thanks for visiting!
