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 🌎✌🏻❀️

Who are You?* (tanka)

self contradictions

within are daily battles

between right and wrong

ever facing each other

no turning back choice binds us

*Footnote:

Today is the Summer Solstice (I’ve attached a link to a song you might enjoy in celebration) signifies rebirth, also a time to celebrate life and growth, which leads me to the following. The choices we make only bind us for as long as we let them. There is always a path to rectify a wrong choice. That path may be difficult, this makes the lesson learned one too be remembered. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»β€οΈβ˜€οΈ

Tranquility * (tanka)

restful sounds of waves

constant rhythm of the ocean

I’ve always had a love for the open seas. Long before flight man has traveled the world on the waterways of our planet, where they lead them and what they would discover at journeys end. What they learned was self resilience, endurance and their own nature. Close your eyes, relax enjoy the sound of the ocean. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸŒŠπŸ›Άβ›΅οΈ
