x-ray-207

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.

samiscribbles Weekend writing prompt #103Vulnerable

24056222-E296-4796-9A1B-D1E99DFA2604

can leave you vulnerable

to exploitation,

although such love is fickle

it educates us in life

oft-times menacing

Cheering only to owners,

shareholders and Directors

The Easter address. #Tanka

Their gaze uplifted

eyes, ears and hearts opened,

smiling in their joy.

His message of peace and love,

a lesson for all nations.

A woodland moment #tanka

Woodpecker drumming,

above the leafy carpet,

butterflies feign love,

sunbeams make elevators

where mosquitoes choose to dance

Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. Ending-Abyss

p-challenge-header (1)Nursed unto the death,

final act of devotion,

eyes gently closing,

only memories remain

in that void once filled with love.

Weekend Writing Prompt – Silence #Tanka Strict order

removing Brother Michael’s

overactive tongue

guaranteed compliance with

the order’s vow of silence

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #21 #Tanka -Quarry

Full green surrounded,

each shaded bank, where moss-lined,

torpid waters lap,

twilight stirring, surfaces

from below, an ancient carp
