Tanka Tuesday – Random words

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?

The gray scarf

Gray tones, the closet is loaded

no feelings and expression in there

only a uniform for blending and never being seeing

between red, green, yellow, and pink

the gray scarf shall be chosen

blending, unseeing

red shoes, heels and lust
the hidden shine of the past
it will be revealed

The gray scarf is the Theme Prompt for Tanka Tuesday this week.

draft

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!

15/30 – it’s the little things

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.
