Perching on the wind

scanning the wild horizons

unblinking beauty

The Titan muse #photochallenge

khione

Under dark skies and Luna’s gaze

I pause, reflecting on my fate

for traitorous act condemned, to hold

the world of man upon my shoulders

I burn each day in Helios’ fire

to suffer Khione’s ire by night,

when men no longer think of us

power is lost for such as Zeus

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, January 23rd 2019, #skating #haiku

Transformed, the waters

petrified, each ripple smoothed

for friction free fun

MLMM’s #Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, January 16th 2019, first day of spring

Entombed in cold earth

dormant daggers are unsheathed

then thrust to the sun.

if not in himself, then through

the fruit of the vine

Back home from the War,

many uncertain if by,

luck or God’s judgment

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGES NO. 115, Fly & Sing #SYNONYMSONLY

From on high we hear

a shower, a melody,

of light, gilded rain,

seldom seen the skylark, who

soars aloft in tuneful voice

Lament

orangutanThe tropical sun

beams down on the arid earth,

palm trees stand in lines,

joyful songs of the forest

become the drumbeat of tears.
