Still hope for nature #tanka

Just a fleeting glimpse

from the corner of your eye

bat or dragonfly,

his heart longs for the former

but reason screams the latter

Time and space ripple

as they wind their endless way,

ad infinitum.

I could hardly believe it. Suddenly stricken with a craving for nostalgia and childhood memories I had decided to take a tour around the land of my birth. Driving around the village of my childhood  I remembered one of the local children’s favourite pastimes. There was a steep hill out of the village with at the bottom a shallow ford where a small stream crossed the road forming a pool, one foot deep at the most. We all used to career down the hill on our pushbikes and with loud cries of delight hold our shorts-clad legs in the air as the water sprayed from beneath our wheels as we crossed. It was great fun especially when someone had the misfortune to fall off. Probably due to the large pebbles we had hidden in the pool. Sadly, now the stream has gone and the children no longer have the pleasure.

Corpulent bodies

like mating elephant seals

soaking up the sun

On a moonlit night

we sat and watched frogs dancing

till one of them croaked

On the horizon

thick dark clouds start to gather

over the pinewoods

fire that swallows the forest

helping regrowth and rebirth
