point of view

magical moment
the waves coming and going
freshness on my face
deeply into the abyss
hallucination comes true

Tanka Tuesday this week is TANKA PROSE: “We write Tanka prose from the first-person point-of-view. The prose paragraph(s) must also seek to be, if not poetic, at least something that grabs our attention. It must compete with the verse in its style, intending to be inventive and expressive all on its own.

I took this photo during the weekend, the weather was fabulous, perfect to wander around and take photos. I thought the photo is perfect for a tanka poem. Hope you enjoy the poem and the photo.

  1. Great poem! Is it just me, or do you see a creepy ghost (merman) looking back at you right above your left foot in the water (where the image begins to blur, two bright dots that look like eyes)? May that hallucination NOT come true. Lol!

    1. Yes, it is there, but I hadn’t seeing it before, only now reading the comments! It’s indeed spooky, I wonder what the creepy ghost would thinking looking at me from down there 🙂
