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

Celtic knot #Tanka

In spiral circles

no leader, no followers

all remain equal,

tracing each line with  finger

connection of the senses

carried on electric light,

pierce ivy shutters,

through twice glazed frames declaring

Neo-Georgian mockery

gardens, both medicinal

and quite appealing

some though find, regular lines

can prove an unsightly bore.

Fingers on the glass

without any persuasion

can provide insight,

with ambiguous answers

to all the sitter’s questions

the lofty, granite spires rise

atop piety,

remaining just a shadow

of the splendour that awaits.

On the horizon

thick dark clouds start to gather

over the pinewoods

fire that swallows the forest

helping regrowth and rebirth

Clad in matching tones

lovers fixed in cold embrace

their limbs entwined.

Shy beneath their parasol

whispering with the wind.

life, ephemeral,

from the corner of my eye

the spectre sighted,

she drifts, part of the forest

and yet leave men’s minds doubting

Nestled in his wings

yet unseen, the playful sprite,

plucks tunes from her hair.

Unknowing, all she hears is,

snare-drum stone midst cooing foam.
