Man made Avalanche
Soon to smother our green earth
What are we doing
To this beautiful planet?
There are no second chances

It is as if this article was reading my mind:

See Plans For The 62-Mile Wall That Would Capture Trash In The Pacific

From Every Angle

Grand house curtain flies
Practiced muscle memory
All pain vanishes
With that first staccato note
And returns with deft applause

Tan Renga Party in Progress: In the Twilight (continued)

Renga Party in Progress: In the Twilight

in the twilight
mist creeps over the fields –
stars twinkle
Chèvrefeuille

climbing vines of honeysuckle
scented breeze lures out the moon
Ese

moonglow touches earth
sparkles brightly on still water
diamonds on the pond
Candy

sudden rainfall scatters the light
a lightning flash makes a frog jump
Hamish

brittle rings break
amid drifting leaves –
Luna, eclipsed
Jen

swaying branches dance
with the autumn wind
Misha D Sky

two silhouettes
under umbrella
at the bus stop
Misha D. Sky

navigating by instinct
on the road to Shangri-La
Lolly

love echoes
in the halls of paradise
a blackbird’s song
Georgia

umbrella eclipses kiss
stolen amongst sweet whispers
Dancing Echoes

day meets night
my love lost in dark
feel his aura
Usha

his skin kissed in the scent
of autumn dreams
Dolores

witching hour
shimmer of the moon
caressing her curves
Celestine

there in the gentle ripples
their hearts speak one language
Gillena

celestial bodies
envious of the lovers –
twinkle each other
Milan

spiritual lantern whisper
chorus of eternal love
Ruchi

scent of hyacinth
mingle with the cool moonlit air
nights to remember
Jazzy

purple beauties wink merrily
lovers drink in the mystique
Nimi

holding hands
light spring in step
– swing sways
Nimi

on the children’s playground
memories grabbing me by the throat
Chèvrefeuille

early temple bell
young monk shudders in his sleep
dream interrupted
Ese

strutting rooster crows
as farmer sips his morning tea
Candy

and the hunter, he waits
he waits as the sun rises
in the Azalea grass
Hamish

plea and answer, eye to eye
and the bow is lowered
Jen

trampled pride
on a trembling lip
it’s dawning
Mish D Sky

morning wood fuels the fire,
he wants coffee, tea and me
Lolly

arrow pierces flesh
quivering quarry succumbs
passion springing forth
Dancing Echoes

Tanka (day fades away)

This is such a wonderful Tanka, five line story, I had to share. Please check out his great blog if you don’t already follow.

Fool's Blog

16 Aug 2015 – Tanka

For just a second,
far-off first-responder songs
rise over rooftops,
marking – as day fades away –
that someone’s leaving with it.
