Pass on the magic
Stir things up

It’s Tuesday and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Filled with nothingness

The void is a vast expanse

We travel alone

Each locked in hollow feelings

Spent, expired in the dead zone.

Leap of Faith .

White

Water

Flowing fast

Suicidal

It’s a leap of faith.

Nature’s blind to danger

Where mists rise to veil the view.

Running leaping in a mad dash.

From it’s source to sea and back again

Just like human life but with much less fuss .

*****

I have chosen to do an Etheree this week, Called Leap of Faith.

WELCOME TO COLLEEN’S TANKA TUESDAY!

Time.

Time creeps up on us

A leisurely assassin,

Unrushed to pass us

Like a steadily pasted chore

Sloth speed, caught up in the toil.

Gone the jaded year

Young buds peep

From the earth.

Greeting clean unsullied air

Under winter skies.
