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…

Tanka Tuesday: Storm

the storm is coming
unhurried willing moment
lightness in the air
letting go of any task
only being here and now

Joining Colleen’s poetry challenge. The words for this week are slow and work. We can use synonyms only.

I took this photo yesterday when leaving work, a storm was approaching and everyone was in hurry to get back home. The moment was so precious, I felt the lightness in the air, I took my time, slowly savoring the moment, step by step, taking photos, no hurry.
