Tanka Tuesday :: Butterfly

emerge
fluttering wings
a treasure to be found
from the soft bed of the ocean
fresh stars
the strong colours are hypnotic
the chains of a promise
pearls and pure gold
resting

Ekphrastic photo is the prompt for Tanka Tuesday this week. Annette Rochelle Aben provided us with the gorgeous photo above. As soon as I saw it, I was reminded of the freedom and passion the butterflies are able to demonstrate while kissing the flowers in my garden. I wrote a butterfly cinquain (2, 4, 6, 8, 2, 8, 6, 4, 2) to complement my thoughts.

Tanka Tuesday :: Illusion

haiga poem

This week Tanka Tuesday is a little bit silly. Colleen wants that we create our own poetry form! We should combine our favourite form with another one of our choice. And we must give a name to it!

I took this photo a few weeks ago, the foggy was dense when I started my walk and little by little it started to dissipate. It was a wonderful early morning and I knew I would write a poem about it.

I’m combining my favourite form, Haiga (Haiku + photography), with Choka (5 + 7 )n + 7 + 7 lines at the end. I’m naming my new poetry form Choiga!

a foggy morning
the fantasy meets the sky
the answer is there
ever out of reach
blending in one split second
balance is missing
transforming gloom into hope
stop the invasion
the past dissipates away
hallucination
words without any meaning
as the summer days go by

I hope you like my creativity! 🙂
