Melancholy (tanka)*

Silently she bends~

hands cupped too catch falling tears~

formed onetime by joy~

soundlessly her lips murmur~

words that have longed to escape

*Sometimes one gets in a pensive moods, doesn’t mean you must dwell there perpetually. I’ve attached a link to some music, not really a song, more of a thought set to music. As always πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™

Restless Slumber (tanka)*

death sleeps restlessly~

dreams of past life’s memory~

times haunting spiral~

of a once possible love~

wakes seeing dry petals fall

Witchy Woman’s Charms (tanka)*

ideal night to cast spells~

binding heart too mind~

bittersweet potion complete~

awaits subjects thirsty lips~

Roller Coasters (haiku)*

echoes of past heard

~where screaming thrills abounded~

silently decays

*I’ve attached a link to my hometown amusement park from my early childhood. The best thing was that it was in town. Sometimes on weekends my dad would take me, it was exciting no matter how often you went. As I got older we lived close enough that I would ride my bike there. Below is a link which gives you the history of the park. As you will soon see why it held so much fun for me as a child. Enjoy the ride!
