Him (tanka)*

loves gaze so intense~

passions flame longs to ignite~

look away one must~

an order to hold control~

calm facade maintained for now

*One of my favorite songs by Jackie Wilson set to a dance routine done by Fred Astaire (whom I crushed on as a young girl watching those old musicals 😁he was so suave, debonair) and the beautiful Rita Hayworth. Enjoy!

At the End* (haiku)

hopes light shines brightly

~no matter how dark the storm~

faith is all one needs

*Footnote:

Judy Garland was such a massive talent. Many have done a cover of You’ll Never Walk Alone, I love hers the best. Enjoy! The photo was taken a mile from home after a storm front moved through. I miss the city and it’s offering, however an open view like this can’t be found there. Country life has its benefits, open spaces, smokey mountain fresh air and farm grown produce. 🌎✌🏻❀️

Landslide * (tanka)

cerebral image

remains when he walked away

joy in that sadness

once again to self control 

living in peace with no strife

*Footnote:

The title I borrowed from the album Fleetwood Mac (in my humble opinion their best) sung by Stevie Nicks. Sometimes in relationships you grow apart (the landslide begins), the reasons are many and different for everyone. You can’t always fix what’s broken, no matter how hard you try. Sometimes you just have to let go. Always 🌎✌🏻❀️
