The night sky #Gogyoka

Unlocking the door
Feeling the scent of the night
They remembered everything
Seduced by the stars
Drifting towards love

The night sky is the theme for this week’s poetry challenge. I’m sure everybody is dreaming of unlocking the doors! Let’s hold on tight and stay indoors for a while. Soon we will be allowed to open the doors and breathe the freshness of a new day/night.

Secret #Tanka

March supermoon – view from my kitchen
The ragged surface
Scarcely shinning upriver
Under the moonlight
An enheartening secret
For all her eternity

The words for this week are Comfort and Worn, synonyms only! I’ve chosen Enheartening and Ragged, and of course the full moon had to be part of the poem! Have you seen how gorgeous the full moon is shinning this month?

The mountain

The Circle of Life

In the morning she opens the window
The mountain greats her: Good morning my darling!
At midday, the mountain says: How are you my darling?
In the evening the mountain whispers to her:
Come to me my darling, I’m waiting for you

Trying a new form of poetry for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge. The form is Gogyoka, below is Colleen’s description for it. Hope I’ve gotten it right!

The Gogyoka in English syllabic poetry form is the only form that does not require a syllable count per the five lines. Please be mindful that each line should be the duration of a single breath or a phrase. Choose your words carefully…
