Tanka Tuesday – Energy

Since today is a full moon, my poem has to be about her. I was waiting for the moon to rise and take the photo for the post. This moon is a supermoon and is called a snow moon.

View from my kitchen at 7 pm eastern time

Letting go of the sacred innocence
the soothing music of the forest
in the dark February sky
bathed in flower essence and
dressed in a silver dress
distressed wolves howling
full snow moon blooms
she is bold
desired
joy

The words for today are game and trouble so I’ve chosen bold and distressed as synonyms. I’m using the Etheree form of poetry.

Full moon blessing to you!

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.
