Beyond walls # Gogyohka

Flowers and fragrance filling our senses
Elements of truth opening hearts
Flickering dreams
Where the space fathers purpose
Beyond the walls the world waits

I’ve been without inspiration lately, it’s difficult to sit and to do something else that it’s not related to my office work. I’ve spending lots of time in the garden and reading. I guess, sometimes we only need to take in and others to create.

Today I decided to give a push and write a little, I wrote few pages in my journal and came up with this poem, a Gogyohka for Colleen’s challenge Poet’s choice. Remember you should read each line in one breath!

Stay Safe!

In a lake nearby

This week Colleen’s Poetry challenge is Poet’s choice.

You know how much I love photography, it’s a form of expression for me. I try to show my feeling through my clicks. The same in relation to writing poems. I love it when I can put both together: photography and poems.

I took this photo few weeks ago. Hubby and I were strolling by a lake nearby and we saw this gorgeous swan in another side of the lake, they never came close before, so we didn’t expect when he/she started to swim towards us. It was a lovely surprise! We were so happy, like kids when receiving a new toy. We took photos and recorded this gorgeous bird. We really enjoyed that moment.

Hope you like the photo and the poem.

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…
