Today’s poem is : Aedth Wishes for the cloths of heaven.

And the Quote.: The blue and the dim and the dark cloths. Of night and light and half light. W.B.Yeat

Darker Depths

The universe  spreads

Black and deep yet star studded

She swirrels her skirts round.

She hides so much in her shadow.

Her dance a tango of joy.

I love the morning

The crispness of the winter

The smell of coffee or tea

You and I cosy inside.

Autumn leaves tanka

I trudge through the leaves

Alone with Ruby and thoughts.

And Autumn colours

Crunchy under foot, blissful

Woman and her dog as one.

Fright Night Tanka

I walk all alone

Demons snapping at my heels

Scared and with no home

Through the kingdom of the moon

Fear above me swoops and whields.

I feel you here now
Tell me why you haunt me still

You left on a row

I am a ghost of myself

I died, you haunt me from life.

                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Senryu : Totter.

No ghost of a chance

I try  hard not to totter

These high heels haunt me.

You have broken me

Tenderness  is at the heart

Of all that  I need.

                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Once a work of art

Destroyed, spite lays at the heart

Jealousy maybe

Spoiled because of its beauty

Is this envy what we need.

Do dewprops adorn

Flowers with due diligence

Do they dance at dawn

Who knows how dewdrops do dance

Due to nature’s dew we do.

Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt: Signs

This week’s prompt from Sue Vincent of Daily Echo  is Signs.

I wrote a Tanka then reversed the verse  which though no longer a Tanka still flow and made sense… I hope. 

The reverse idea comes from micketalbot

                 Signs

Bleached white by the sun

Then on green felt ‘proudly’ hung?

Killed by man alone

Why display this in your home

A sign man still has to grow.

A sign man still has to grow

Why display this in your home

Killed by man alone

Then on green felt proudly hung

Bleached white by the sun.
