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!

The day after :: Etheree

Past
Present
The plain truth
Moment between
Waiting for a sign
Tears turned out diamonds
In the middle of the fog
She knows, the mirror does not lie
Scars are embroidered into laces
The exhausting cries now sound like a valse

I’ve chosen the theme for this week’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge: The day after. With many things going on in this world right now, that I thought we should look ahead a little bit and maybe see some light.

Dimension, Gogyoka

This week Tanka Tuesday challenge’s prompt is a photo prompt. I soon as I saw this photo I had the feeling of isolation, being lost in the middle of the forest. When I looked closer at it, I saw the girl had a certain contentment in her expression, it’s like she had chosen to be there, she was fine and protected by the tree in the background.

Carried away to another dimension
Leaving behind all the struggling and oppression
She is free and protected now
Breathing deeply and staring ahead
Solitude won't be dreaded

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.
