Spin, New Dreams, Twine phantasms, Tendrils of hope, Iridescent hued, An ivory tower, An arcadian world glows, No longer an idyllic lair, But my eyes yearn to drink it all in, A variegated kaleidoscope.

A volley of a heated fire, And spouts of steaming vitriol, On all things very trivial, Incited by a raging ire, So Hurting all in its crossfire.

A Haibun The stony cliffs stared into the infinite cerulean expanse. The waves that seemed to roll in from faraway horizon crashed into the stones with a rhythmic symphony. The silvery rolling crests dazzled in the bright sun. The tiny blossoms on the cliff waltzed in the gentle breeze to their music. Nature was at… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Guardian #writephoto
