tied hands words won't save her in luxuriousness the answer is in the background despair the desired freedom will meet her far away the sea waits looking for hope it's time
twilight light from within candlelight and journal the thoughts are scribbled and sorted hurry a healthy breakfast and lunch prep flying as butterfly the office waits morning
Tanka Tuesday prompt is ‘share your day’. I have written a butterfly cinquain to describe a little bit of my early mornings.
focus a click, a sound exploding the senses pencil caressing the paper just like an addicting enthusiasm opposing ideas reaching the ground thunder
Tanka Tuesday – theme prompt “The Nature of Lightning” – I’m sharing a Butterfly Cinquain about my process of creating a draft, putting ideas together, scribbling, and words floating until they reach the paper, the ground, and an explosion. Hope you enjoy it!
Early morning jogging. The silence and emptiness of the streets, the contrast between the softness in the air and the rough touch of my sneakers on the ground. Balance, focusing on what is ahead and at the same time feeling the present moment.
the morning bareness
opens the heart to the soul
whispers of promise
stop. breathe. listen the sacred
each step counts, self-discover
Tanka Tuesday this week is tanka prose consisting of a preface and a tanka poem.
inner to my heart
memories flash in my mind
craving the beyond
luxury in my garden
the love and feeling
take my soul far far away
opening the path
the closeness and abundance
red velvet is the colour
Tanka Tuesday is a taste of the rainbow: to choose a colour and write a syllabic poem. The colour I’ve chosen is red velvet from my precious rose. Choka is a form that consists of 9 lines with 5-7-5-7-5-7-5-7-7 syllables. The rose bush in the photo is very precious to me, hope you can feel it through the poem.
A question for you: If you could go back 20 years ago and change your path, would you do it?
light and shadow
the farce of a moment
going ahead, taking a turn
return to an uncertain past
carving a safe future
A butterfly cinquain for Tanka Tuesday.
magical moment the waves coming and going freshness on my face deeply into the abyss hallucination comes true
Tanka Tuesday this week is TANKA PROSE: “We write Tanka prose from the first-person point-of-view. The prose paragraph(s) must also seek to be, if not poetic, at least something that grabs our attention. It must compete with the verse in its style, intending to be inventive and expressive all on its own.“
I took this photo during the weekend, the weather was fabulous, perfect to wander around and take photos. I thought the photo is perfect for a tanka poem. Hope you enjoy the poem and the photo.
a nature’s delicacy
Breakfast anyone? With the arrival of spring all the fresh and delicious berries start to show up at the stores. I enjoy to ate a handful of them early morning, it’s like I’m gifting myself with a load of antioxidants.
Sharing with Tanka Tuesday – Taste the rainbow
Happy Spring everyone! We are still freezing here in my city in Canada, but last week I saw the first signs of spring while visiting New York City. Those tiny purple flowers on the ground made me smile.
Tanka Tuesday this week is a theme prompt: Fire and Water, below is my poem where I’ve chosen sunshine for fire and icy for water. Hope you enjoy it!
midday early spring sunshine warming up my face the ground still icy mixed feelings, blending moments losing the mind between thoughts
blue and yellow blast i'm lost in a field of dreams edge of the abyss i look at my hands the tiny emerald ring roots me to the earth it's time to grow and renew the grass dancing with the breeze
Is anyone else feeling at the edge of the abyss? This winter has been so long and the creativity muse has left. Finally, this week the outdoors grey is giving some space for the sunshine and I’m starting to reclaim my creativity.
Tanka Tuesday this week is colours of the rainbow, green. My poem, consisting of a haiku and a tanka, intentionally doesn’t have the word green in it, but it has ‘green’ all over it. Hope you enjoy it!
