Night

Owls wisely hooting
Grounding and discovering
Wolves magically howling
Full moon lights the field
Each step is an encounter

I wrote this tanka last night listening to the owls hooting at the distance. It was a warm autumn night, I kept the windows open giving permission to the crisp air and the sounds of the night enter my home and clear my thoughts.

The moon will guide you through the night with her brightness, but she will always dwell in the darkness, in order to be seen.

singular brightness
longing for the distant past
dreams of forgiveness
the answers bloom like flowers
in the forsaken journey

Revelation #Haiga

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.

Secret #Tanka

March supermoon – view from my kitchen
The ragged surface
Scarcely shinning upriver
Under the moonlight
An enheartening secret
For all her eternity

The words for this week are Comfort and Worn, synonyms only! I’ve chosen Enheartening and Ragged, and of course the full moon had to be part of the poem! Have you seen how gorgeous the full moon is shinning this month?
