Thanks (a Gogyohka) Days of travail now ending They swept you in their tide A passive trance held you You move ahead only grateful That you survived the tornado. Via: https://wordcraftpoetry.com/2020/12/01/tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-no-205-poetschoice/

We all await with a baited breath afraid and full of fear. Awaiting the apocalypse,it all seems to be happening somewhere far- fetched. It is more likely a movie of doomsday playing. We had read about plagues and epidemics in past times. It could not happen to us. We are the millennials,the natives of all… Continue reading A Prayer( a haibun)
A soul soared high, Bonds broken, An Ariel free, It waltzed to the notes, Its own. And denizens below, It watched them, Faces seen, Aeons ago, Now saying kind words, No longer in a surly tone. Maybe! They were glad to see it go. Goodies passed, Tables laid in bountiful, Dainty linen, Shining cutlery on… Continue reading As it soared high
A goodbye to the year that was, Letting go, Bygones are begones. Now, I can only stand and stare, As the kaleidoscope of life unrolls, The hits and misses, The high and lows, Each leaving its mark, Imprinted on the sands of time.

One day, She floated free, Breaking all those bonds, Ties that anchored her not. She called out to deaf walls, Her cries resonated in her own ears, And tears that shed, But moved none.

A fuzzy mind swoons, But not a morsel of food, Still a serene smile.
It is my Aurora, My haven of peace. As I set my foot on the hallowed earth, I lose myself. The shining dazzle of the array, Pervades to my inner being, Illuminating the dark corners, Stoking the dying embers, Igniting new ones. An irridiscent hue, And luminiscent cues, Showing me the way in the dark… Continue reading My Aurora
