and below is my Etheree for Tanka Tuesday, this week poet’s choice.
on earth magic
the deep need for a change
breathing in and breathing out
a few droplets of lavender
on my pillow under the bright moon
craving the energy for acceptance
blue immensity from the skies to the oceans you have all my heart wondering what is hidden beyond treasures and despair
it’s time for tanka tuesday, our own choice of words, for today i’ve chosen heart and despair.
i took this photo last week, the sky was so blue, no clouds around. i was waiting outdoors for my son to give me a ride and i was wondering what is beyond all this blue. not about the universe, planets, atmosphere and stuff, but about the mystery, the magic, what is there that we can’t see?
i wasn’t sure if it is appropriate to make a haiga using a tanka, instead a haiku, but i had more words and it wouldn’t fit as haiku, they needed to be written.
