Tanka Tuesday – Lone

Image credit: Unsplash, and the photographer is Wolfgang Hasselmann
Being carried away by longing
Blending among the canopy
Wondering and wandering
Sensing forgotten paths
Into the forest
Braids and branches
Turning one
Single
Gleam

Today’s prompt for Tanka Tuesday is a photo prompt. The photo should be able to inspire you to write a poem. That single mushroom in this photo evoked me a feeling of loneness. I’m sharing it using Nonet as the poetry form.

wheel
laughing
dripping tears
pillar of life
where is the balance?
it's the rhyme and sonnet
it's lost in the encounters
always revolving around time
the obscurity of the limit
the plain interpretation of being

the words for tanka tuesday this week are circled and squared, synonyms only! i’ve chosen wheel and balance and etheree as a form.

Adrift

she's
adrift
no grounding
the fear is loud
bathed by the new moon
lone under the darkness
the past said only farewell
a few fragments of memory
the future is lost into the fog

Colleen’s poetry challenge this week is a photo prompt. My entry is a reverse nonet. Hope you enjoy!

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.

Longing

Reena’s Exploration Challenge prompt this week is a photo, a mean, few photos to chose from, I picked this one:

Here is my entry:

Longing
Not sure for what
Maybe a place, a time, space
between dreams and instincts
Transforming
Flying far from the being
only to be
the truth, the passion
Grounded and free
The imagination opens to the impossible
Thoughts closing up
Reason and intuition
Fighting, begging their moment
Each one is a battle
The skin and the suffer
Giving room to the pleasure
A mission accomplished
A promise was forgotten
