Rhapsody In Blue* (tanka)

fingers dance on keys

ballerina like movements

gliding end to end

rhythmic changes makes them jump

frantic motion comes to rest

*Footnote:

The art and music brought the inspiration for this piece. The music is by Gershwin, titled Rhapsody In Blue which I used for the title of this piece. I have attached a link to a piano solo of his musical creation. Oh to be able to play like that. I have also posted the name of the artist on his work.

Thank you for taking the time to read my simple words. 🌎✌🏻❤️🌻

Formal Fowl* (tanka)

he struts gracefully

black white natural attire

plume tightly slicked back

cravat flares at base of neck

polished boots reflect rippling

THROUGH OPEN LENS

Home of Lukas Kondraciuk Photography, provided me with the photo as inspiration. If you’re a birdwatcher or just like birds you should visit. He also provides links with information about the birds. The captions are funny, they will quack you up. Oh my it’s catchy!
