shadows ~ a tanka

shadows of the past

tugged gently in by sunshine

shrugs off winter ice

pale pink possibilities

blossom even in the shade

ripples #50 ~ a renga

Ripples ~ This renga is a collaborative  writing effort of David of The Skeptic’s Kaddish and me, Sangeetha of Mindfills. David’s words, completing the tanka, are in italics and in bold. What started with this  haiku, is now a renga of 50 verses 🙂 which makes it a Gojuin!

ripples #50

beyond the brink
melting moments and lifetimes
~ I sleep into you
forms fading, dreams displacing
~ souls slowly slip together



***

written in response to

sighing so softly
trailing tender tremors
my soul surrenders
touched by thin, teasing tendrils
you’re sweetly, softly seduced

We invite you to read all of the 50 ripples here ☺️ and you can read what David has written all about our journey here!
Lots of love and gratitude to you all for reading and your kind words of appreciation. 🙏

ripples #35 ~ a renga

lush branches start life
swinging on maybes
earth and sky await
syllables swing down from above
seeking new bows to rest upon

toes of trees dig into earth
arms reach out to sky
the unanchored tilde floats
through lush branches to the sky

ripples#31 ~ a renga


holding on to earth
daffodils reach for the sky
stretching all that’s real
twisting tesseract appears
folding nature on itself

preserving prayers
paradise plants seeds of hope
in every dew drop
daffodils drawing diet
from damp delectable dirt
