selfish on her grace
she's capricious each moment
a trap for the eyes
Tanka Tuesday this week invites us to play with words. I love to write found poetry, and this is similar. She gave us a list of words to pick three or more and write a poem. I’ve chosen: selfish, capricious and trap. These beautiful yellow flowers are in a pot on my desk, I’m enchanted by their beauty, so this poem is for them. The words are below, why don’t you give it a try?
a click, a sound
exploding the senses
pencil caressing the paper
an addicting enthusiasm
reaching the ground
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.
