Cut your roots.

Rooted to the ground
From the moment we are born
We are tied and bound
Yet we all have the ability to fly
To cut the earthly chains
And soar through clear blue sky
Sever the ties ignore the pains
Reaching the edge of space
If only in our imagination
Ignoring gravity, flying in it’s face
We are all magic, let’s cause consternation .

#TankaTuesday #Ekphrastic #Poetry Challenge No. 318


This #TankaTuesday challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry, inspired by works of art. Let’s start May off with an interesting painting.

Like Colleen I thought the woman in this painting was using a mobile phone but as the painting is from 1860 that is not possible …… or is it?

I enjoyed writing Tankas last week so I have used them again this week. I have thought what this painting says to me and also what I see. I have tried to hint at time travel without being too obvious whether or not I succeeded I am not sure.


The Expected One
painting by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (Museum: Bavarian State Painting Collections)

An enigma she
Spinning time and space truly
Huge changes to come
Her beau waits sweet promises
On his mind, to bind their lives.


Just watch where you tread
Life can change in a moment
Every second counts
A few words can change the course
Time and space irrelevant.
