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!

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 🌎✌🏻❀️

Time after Time *

Beneath her flesh Runes awaken speak, she leans into arm, eyes closed, hidden, listening intently. Memories of longing now lost, as her Beloved slowly approaches. Ignites her energy allowing His too encompass her. Basking in His cool pale light, the Moon eclipses her fire, enjoys warmth, their souls are one in this moment. Now Master Time forever rules the skies moves forward, grants them not a second more. Sun, Moon must now pass into their next phase of longing, waiting again.
